An exceptional standing jump would raise a person 0.80 m off the ground. To do this, what force must a 70kg person exert against the ground? Assume the person lowers himself .20m prior to jumping?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Ok, i know i need to find the acceleration and use the Fnet=ma equation but where do i start first?
