Lola goes bungee jumping. She leaps from a bridge that is 100 m above a river. Her bungee cord has an unstretched length of 50 m and a spring constant k=700N/m. lola has a mass of 45 kg. How fast is she falling when she just starts to stretch the cord? How long does it take for Lola to reach this point.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I used the equation V=√(k/m)(A)^2 and I got

V=√(700N/m/45kg)(50m)^2)=197.20m/s

I was wondering If I used the right equation b/c the answer seems awfully high.

The second part of the question i don't know which equation to use.

Thanks
