I am looking for a simple equation to calculate my initial velocity when I jump in layman's terms. For instance...if I weigh 91kg and jump 1 meter...what is my initial velocity and what would my maximum jump height be if I weighed 81kg? This is probably something I missed in freshman physics...but I was a business major and not too bright!!!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
