Problem 8P

IP A 42.0-kg parachutist is moving straight downward with a speed of 3.85 m/s. (a) If the parachutist comes to rest with constant acceleration over a distance of 0.750 m, what force does the ground exert on her? (b) If the parachutist comes to rest over a shorter distance, is the force exerted by the ground greater than, less than, or the same as in part (a)? Explain.

Solution 8P

Step 1 of 4

In part (a) To find the force of the parachutist moving straight downward to the ground and also in part(b) to explain if the parachutist come to rest , the force exerted by the ground is greater than, less than or remains same as in part(a)
