Q:
# Terminal velocity is the fastest speed that an object can fall through the air. A skydiver reaches a terminal velocity of 120 miles per hour. What is the change in elevation of the skydiver after falling at terminal velocity for 15 seconds?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:2640ft, or 1/2mi. Step-by-step explanation:120mi/hr*5280=633,600633,600/3600 (to convert it from ft/hr to ft/sec) =176ft/sec176x15=2640ft, which is equivalent to 1/2mi.
