A parachutist's rate during a free fall reaches 198
feet per second. What is this rate in meters per second? At this rate, how many meters will the parachutist fall during 20 seconds of free fall? In your computations, assume that 1 meter is equal to 3.3 feet. Do not round your answers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\sf \frac{198~ft}{1~sec}~\times \frac{1~m}{3.3~ft} = ~\frac{198}{3.3}~\frac{m}{s} \]Now create a ratio. \[\sf \frac{198~m}{3.3~sec} = \frac{x~m}{20~sec}\] Cross multiple and solve for the meters fallen in 20 seconds.
