Applied Numerical Analysis.
Problem Statement Suppose that a team of three parachutists (with masses mi, m2, and m2) is connected by a weightless cord while free-falling at a velocity of v 5 m/s, as illustrated in Figure 1 (a) Draw the force free-body diagram (FBD) for each parachute and for each FBD derive the mathematical equation using the Seconds newton Law. Note that each parachute feels a drag force cv, where c denotes the drag coefficient, and its own weight mg, where g-9.8m/s2. (10 pts.) (b) Using the linear equations found in (a) and the values given in table 1, write the proper system of equations where a (acceleration), T (tension), and R (tension) are the three unknowns variables.
