A 75.0 kg skydiver can be modeled as a rectangular "box" with dimensions 24.0 cm\times 44.0 cm\times 184 cm.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is his terminal speed if he falls feet first?

I know that drag = mg when terminal speed is reached. so drag is 75*9.8

and there's a formula drag = KV^2 where K is drag coeff and V is velocity, but I don't know K.

a little help?
