Tell me if I am correct

  1. Oct 27, 2005 #1
    A bungee jumper jumps from a bridge, and I havr to determine where his maximum velocity occures. I reckon it occures at the instant the the bungee cord is stretched such that the force pulling up equals the force of gravity pulling down on the jumper, becuase up untill then, accleration has been positive. Am I correct?
