(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A person jumps from a window into a fire safety net. The person drops 15.0 meters, stretching the net 1.0 meter. What is the average deceleration before coming to rest?

2. Relevant equations

All of the constant acceleration equations should apply here.

3. The attempt at a solution

Well it would be sad to call this an attempt. But here goes.

I collected everything I knew about the motion.

The person is in free fall, therefore I know that Vminimum is at t=0

V 1=0 m/s a=9.8 m/s and the total displacement I believe should be 16.0 meters because the net stretched 1.0 meter whether or not thats relevant I'm not sure.

So where to go from here is my real problem.

Thanks
