1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Ok, relatively simple question here, but I have a newb doubt.... "A basketball player with a mass of 112kg can jump 0.92 m into the air during a slam dunk competition. Calculate the force that pulls the player back towards the floor." 2. Relevant equations ## \vec f = m \vec g## 3. The attempt at a solution Is the 0.92 m height a red herring distraction? If so it's just a straightforward 112 kg x 9.8 m/s^2 = 1098 N answer. Am I correct to ignore the 0.92 m height? Apologies in advance for such a basic question.
