Question #38423

For the free-falling parachutist with linear drag, assume a first jumper is 80 kg and has a drag

coefficient of 12 kg/s. If a second jumper has a drag coefficient of 15 kg/s and a mass of 93 kg,

how long will it take the second jumper to reach the same velocity as the first jumper reached in 10 s?
