The terminal speed (in m/s) of the skydriver can be approximated by square root 40 m, where m is the mass (in kg) of the skydiver. calculate the terminal speed of a 100kg shydiver. write an exact answer in radical form. simplify the radical by factoring.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0where: \[V_t\] is terminal velocity m is mass of the falling object g is acceleration due to gravity (9.81m/s^2) Cd = drag coefficient ρ = density of the fluid through which the object is falling A = projected area of the object.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In your case, the terminal Velocity is \[\sqrt{40*m}\] where m is the mass (in kg) of a skydiver.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if you need the terminal velocity of a skydiver whose mass is 100kg, then plug in 100kg into the equation above... You didn't even need the terminal velocity equation and all that crap.. sorry I didn't read the question carefully first time
