A 79 kg skydiver can be modeled as a rectangular "box" with dimensions 25 cm x 39 cm x 1.8 m.

What is his terminal speed if he falls feet first?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

So im not sure what im doing wrong, here is what i did.

D= 1/4 av2 = .25(.25 x .39)= .020

skydiver's weight i took from kg to N which ended up being 774.2

then i did 774.2/.020 and did square root, and i ended up with 196.7, apparently it is saying this is not the right answer, did i do this correctly!? help! :(
