Problem Set 4 - Due Wednesday, Feb. 8

Section 2.3: #4,6,8,9,12;

Extra Problem: A woman of 60 kg bails out of an airplane at an altitude of 10,000 ft. She falls freely (no air resistance) for 20 s and then opens the parachute. The parachute provides an air resistance of –kv, where k=96 kg/s and v is the velocity. When does the woman reach the ground and what is her impact velocity? Use g=32 ft/s2 in your calculation.
