Basically, i was told to describe the physics involved with a person who just happens to be falling out the sky...However, i'm a bit overwhelmed as to where i should start off
Human mass: 54kg
Earth's gravity: 9.8m/s^2
Air resistance:???perhaps negligible or would that throw my answer off?
So im guessing some relevant equations would be....
Newton's Law of Gravitation
however i was reading that his law only applies to 3 situations and one of which is a sphere (earth in my case) and a "particle" which is much smaller (i assume that would be the human) Does that work??
Acceleration due to gravity=9.8m/s^2
The Attempt at a Solution
I can find the gravitational force between the human and the centre of earth through newton's law of gravitation and explain this.
is there anything else i'm missing/can explain? How would I incorporate air resistance into this...
