My friends and I were having a discussion about falling and new the whole rate of acceleration and what not, but where unsure how to account for A) wind resistance and B) the act of jumping.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So assuming that we "jump" from a 7th story building, and assuming that each story is 10 feet, and all other factors are static. Assuming that One "jumps" roughly 8in 20.3cm, how would you go about calculating how fast you would be going when you hit the ground, accounting for wind resistance?
