Urgent question

  1. Jan 3, 2009 #1
    I am solving an advanced problem involving air resistance. I keep coming up with the wrong answer. My question is how would you solve for the cross sectional area of a vertical sky-diver? This may be the reason my answer is coming out incorrect. Would it just be by measuring the area of the shoulders and head of that person???????

    You might want to post this in the Homework/Coursework section. A descriptive title may help as well.
