    Please help me to solve this question because I don't have a clue to do that!!

    Q: In a bungee jump a volunteer of mass 70 kg drops from a bridge, tethered to his jump point by an elastic cable of unstretched length L = 20m and elastic modulus 3000 N. Ifnoring energy losses, and assuming he hits nothing below, find the jumper's maximum distance of fall.

    Homework questions should be posted in the homework help section, and you should post your work, even if it's only as much as looking up relevant equations in the book.
