1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A cargo packed for aerial dropping can withstand an impact speed of 20 mph. A 100 foot diameter circular parachute is used for a particular load. What is the largest load (including the chute itself) that can be accommodated by this chute. 2. Relevant equations Vt = SQUARE ROOT OF EVERYTHING OVER HERE [(2 x W x 32.2(Gravitational Constant) / .1(Coefficient of drag) x Area x .0805 ft cubed] 32.2; .1; and .0805 are unchanging constants. 3. The attempt at a solution First I converted 20mph to 29.4 ft per sec, this is the plugin for Terminal velocity, Vt Then I calculated the area of the circular chute. Since r = 50 and using piR2..... I got 7853.91 Then I started solving the equation with all the plugins And I got 848.24 lbs for W... Is this correct? Does this look accurate to everyone? I figured I'd ask because its a new chapter and I'm uncomfortable with the problems.
