Problem 58GP

Problem

A person jumps out a fourth-story window 18.0 m above a firefighter’s safety net. The survivor stretches the net 1.0m before coming to rest, Fig. 2-45. (a) What was the average deceleration experienced by the survivor when she was slowed to rest by the net? (to) What would you do to make it "safer" (that is, to generate a smaller deceleration): would you stiffen

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 58GP

The man jumps from 18m above the ground. The speed of the man increases till he touches the net which is held 1m above the ground. When the men hits the net, he starts to slow down and stops when the net touches the ground.

V0=0

Δy1=17m  (the displacement to the net)

Δy2=1m    (the height of the net to the ground)

V1=?          (the velocity of the man when he hits the net)

V2=0          (the final velocity of the net when he hits the ground)

a=?           (average acceleration while the net is slowing down the men)

a)

Step 1 of 2</p>

We must find the speed of the man when he hits the net.
