HI ALL!

Recently in class, we were assigned to find a video that presented an impossible situation and we had to calculate if the situation was even possible. My video was about a window washer that plunged 47 Floors. I've posted my calculations and information on it on my page!

If any of you are interested, please take a look and comment on my page!
It'd be nice if you guys would make suggestions on any part of my analysis or any comment at all. If I've made any mistakes or wrong assumptions that had made the problem too simple please do point it out!

Help is greatly appreciated! :)
Thank you!

Welcome to PF, piggyxchu!

Suppose the acceleration at the end is indeed 10g.
What would the distance be to stop over this distance?
