    Using \[a = \left(\begin{matrix}Fnet \\ m\end{matrix}\right) = \left(\begin{matrix}W - R \\ m\end{matrix}\right)\] find Bronco's acceleration at each position. You need to know that his mass is 100 kg, so his weight is a constant 1000 N. Air resistance (R) varies with seed and cross - sectional area as shown.

    Do you know any air resistance coefficient... Normally it's given as: Fdrag = A*C Where A is area of the person perpendicular to it's direction and C is some sort of air drag constant. Further on, do you know the area (A in previous formula) of mr Bronco?

    so what do i need to multiply or divide? or subtract or +

    I don't see how "Air resistance (R) varies with seed and cross - sectional area as shown. " Because it isn't shown

    If R=0, as you show in your figure, and straight down (as in figure) ... the only acceleration he gets is gravitational acceleration (g=9.81 m/s^2)

    so do u know how to calculate it now?

    If there is no air resistance (R=0) and he will just jump straight down, his accelerations are: a(y) = 0 a(x) = 0 a(z) = g = 9.81 m/s (if z points down is positive, note SI units)

    coordinate system.. x and y are the horizontal components, z is vertical

    ok, so the acceleration is 0?

    in horizontal direction, yes... it's 9.81 m/s2 in vertical direction (down)
