 Homework Statement:

The diagram (attached) shows a parachutist of mass 82 kg falling towards
the Earth. In each case, determine the net force and the acceleration
of the parachutist
 Relevant Equations:
 F=Ma
Hi All,
Please see attached photo of the question.
It is asking for net force and acceleration. Taking the forces acting upwards and downwards on the
parachutist as vectors: for A the net force would be 800300=500; B would be 0 and C; would that be 8001500=700? And if so would that imply that this is a negative acceleration of 8.5ms^2 or is this a deceleration?
Thanks
