1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data If one jump from an airplane 4572m above the ground. if the terminal speed of a human is 53m/s (without a parachute) how long would it take u to hit the ground and how fast would u be going when u hit the ground? 3. The attempt at a solution I answered the second part with just 53m/s since its the terminal speed For part 1 however, I first found the time it takes for the human to reach 53m/s soo: 9.81 = (53 - 0)/t....... t = 5.4s.....With that i found the distance it travels during this time period : d = (0)(5.4) + (1/2)(9.81)(5.4)^2........ d = 143m With this distance, I subtracted it from the original distance: 4572 - 143 = 4429m With that distance, I found the time it takes so: t = 4429/53 = 83.56s..... then I added the 2 times: so 83.56 + 5.4 = 88.96s = total time Is this correct? or is there a step missing or am I going in the wrong direction?
