Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a physics project about parachutes and how they work, everything is fine with me except the task4 which is about its equations. It's really hard to find a good site that can fill in all these equations. And also I have a problem understanding what is needed other than equations.

here is what the task says

Task 4:

Use the given equations to model the motion of the parachutist, before and after the opening of a parachute. Chart the velocity and altitude with time using Microsoft Excel. Use a lookup function to determine the air density at each altitude point.

and can some one explain what do they mean by charting the velocity and altitude with time using excel ?

chech the attached file for all equations and info.

thanks
