A person bails out of an airplane at an a;titude of 15,000 feet, falls freely for 35 seconds, then opens the parachute. How long will it take the person to reach the ground? Assume linear air resistance pV ft/s^2, paking p=.17 without the parachute and p=1.5 with the parachute.
The Attempt at a Solution
v(0) = 0
The text book is very vague and unsure how to even approach the set up of this equation please help with detailed explaination. Thank you so very much.
