1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 72 kg person escapes from a burning building by jumping from a window 30 m above a catching net. The acceleration of gravity is 9.81 m/s2. Assuming that air resistance is simply a constant 88 N force on the person during the fall, determine the person’s velocity just before hitting the net. 2. Relevant equations Fg (force of gravity) - Air resistance = (mass) (acceleration) Vf^2 = Vi^2 + 2ax 3. The attempt at a solution I think the only reason that I am getting the question wrong is because of the fact that I think that inital velocity of the man jumping out is 0. I'm pretty sure that I plugged in everything on the first equation correctly, but I'm geting frustrated.
