A 60 kg bungee jumper jumps from a bridge. She is tied to a 12 m long bungee cord and falls a total of 31 m. Calculate the spring constant of the bungee cord and the maximum acceleration experienced by the jumper.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I don't even know where to start. Can you tell me which equations I would use to find the answers to both parts of the problem?
