Help Do A VT Graph

  1. Oct 1, 2008 #1
    I need to do a VT graph showing a parachute jump, I need an explanation about the graph too.



    2. Relevant equations
    None

    My Attempt:
    [​IMG]

    From point 0-2 the jump is accelerating largely at a constant uniform. From point 2-4 the acceleration remains at a constant velocity. From point 4-6 the gradient decreases at a constant speed until it reaches zero.

    Thanks a lot,
    GCSEsoon

    What is it you are attempting to show with your graph. Perhaps a little more of an explanation of your thinking about your graph is in order?

    What happens when the chute deploys? The diver stops at constant velocity or slows to a final velocity of descent?

    At the ground, how fast will the jumper stop? 2 seconds to hit the ground and slow his impact?
