Question: for highspeed motion through the airsuch as the skydiver shown...

Question details

For high-speed motion through the air-such as the skydiver shown in the figure below, falling before the parachute is opened-air resistance is closer to a power of the instantaneous velocity v(t) kv2 mg Determine a differential equation for the velocity v(t) of a falling body of mass m if air resistance is proportional to the square of the instantaneous velocity. Assume the downward direction is positive (Use k > 0 for the constant of proportionality, g > 0 for acceleration due to gravity, and v for v(t).) dv dt Need Help? Read It Talk to a Tutor
