**1. Homework Statement**

A 100kg skydiver has a terminal velocity of 58 m/s. Assuming air resistance of the skydiver is F

_{air}=.3(v)

^{2}, how long will it take the skydiver to reach 58 m/s?

gravity is 10 m/s

^{2}in our class btw.

**2. Homework Equations**

F

_{air}=.3(v)

^{2}

F

_{g}=mg

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I know the air resistance force will end up equaling 1000N at 58 m/s. I just don't know how long that will take.
