A parachutist relies on air resistance (mainly on her parachute) to decrease her downward velocity. She and her parachute have a mass of 55.0 kg and air resistance exerts a total upward force of 620 N on her and her parachute.
A.) What is the weight of the parachutist? B.) What is the net force? Is it upward or downward? C.) What is the acceleration (magnitude and direction) of the parachutist?
Can someone tell me what's the free body diagram?
The Attempt at a Solution
I was told in my previous thread that I needed to add the forces and then use F = ma
Someone give me tips on how to go about questions A, B, and C please >.< Thanks!
