This question was actually a 3 part question. I answered (a) and (b) correctly however I can't figure out how to calculate the 'final velocity of the skydiver'. Here are the givens:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

x axis

v1 - 90 m/s

acceleration - zero

delta t - 10.6 seconds

delta d - 958.5 m

Y axis

v1 = 0

delta t - 10.6 seconds

acceleration = -9.8 m/s^2

delta d = 550 m

I was already asked to calculate the vertical velocity of the skydiver which was 100 m/s.

However now they want me to find the final velocity. I was thinking about using the equation:

V2= V1 + a (delta t)

When I use this equation though I don't come up with the right answer, which is supposed to be 130 m/s.

Help!!
