TheI momentum of a skydiver increases as speed increases does the momentum of the earth simultaneously change how much and in what direction how does the system made up of the earth and the skydiver?

For a simple answer, we have to ignore air resistance. As the skydiver's downward momentum increases, the earth's upward momentum increases by an identical amount. The total momentum of the earth-skydiver system remains constant.

What is the acceleration of a skydiver when air resistance builds up to half his weight?

When the air resistance acting upwards on a skydiver equals half his weight, the resultant force on the skydiver will therefore be only half as much as his weight. Since acceleration is proportional to resultant force, the acceleration will only be half as much if the only force acting was gravity. Acceleration due to gravity is 9.8 metres per second squared, so the answer is 4.9 metres per second squared.

When air resistance on a falling skydiver builds up to 0.3 the weight of the skydiver what is the acceleration of the skydiver?

The acceleration will be 0.7 of the initial acceleration. 0.7x9.81=6.87m/s^2

Whats the weight you have to be skydiver?

The maximum weight for a person to skydive is 220 pounds.

How much air resistance acts on a 500 N skydiver that falls at her terminal velocity?

500 N is pressumably the weight, due to gravity. "Terminal velocity" means that the forces are in balance; the total force acting on the skydiver are zero. This is only possible if there is a 500 N force due to friction, to counteract the weight.

What forces are acting on a skydiver?

Gravity pulling the skydiver down towards the earth. And friction (air resistance) acting in the opposite direction. The force of friction increases as the the skydiver falls faster until it is equal but opposite to the force of gravity. When this happens the Skydiver has reached terminal velocity.

How fast does a skydiver fall?

Varies depending on body position and weight of the skydiver. Could be anywhere from 100 to over 200 miles per hour.

What is the magnitude of the force of gravity on the skydiver with 845 N?

If you're telling us that the skydiver weighs 845 newtons, then that's the magnitudeof the forces of gravity between him and the Earth whenever he's near the Earth.

The fource that pulls a skydiver back to earth is called?


How does a skydiver increase his or her terminal velocity?

adding weight and by decresing air recistance

Where would your weight be greater the moon or earth?

Your weight on earth is about 6.13 times as much as your weight on the moon. Your weight on the moon is about 0.16 of your weight on earth.

How can a skier achieve greater velocity than a skydiver?

If a skier is in a jump, then a skier and skydiver is pretty much the same thing. In general though, a skydiver has only air resistance, the skier has air resistance and friction with the ski-snow, so the skydiver has an edge on speed.

How does terminal velocity affect acceleration?

The terminal velocity of an object moving through a fluid under the force of gravity (let's assume the fluid is air for sake of discussion) occurs at the speed where the drag force of the air on the object becomes equal to the weight of the object. At this point the object has stopped accelerating and is in uniform motion (constant speed).For example, a skydiver jumping out of a plane will accelerate towards the Earth. At first the skydiver is accelerating at 9.8 m/s2, the gravitational acceleration of the Earth. But as he accelerates to higher speed, drag force becomes greater and the rate of acceleration slows. Drag force is proportional to the square of the speed, by the way. Eventually the skydiver will reach a speed (around 120 mph depending on the orientation of the skydiver's body) where the drag force is equal to his weight. That will be his terminal velocity.

Why won't a skydiver's speed continue to increase until his or her parachute opens?

Once a skydiver jumps off the plane, they will begin picking up speed. However, as the speed of the skydiver increases, the amount of air resistance acting upon them will also increase. The skydiver will continue to accelerate while his or her weight is greater than the air resistance. When the force of the air resistance becomes equal to the weight of the skydiver, the skydiver will stop accelerating and will continue falling at a constant speed, this is known as the terminal velocity. While travelling at terminal velocity, the skydiver will be able to adjust his or her body position in a way that will increase or decrease the air resistance and allow the diver to alter their speed. Releasing his or her parachute will drastically increase the amount of air resistance and therefore slow their descent significantly.

how does the weight of an object on the Earth compares with its weight on the moon?

On the Earth, the object weighs 6.04 times as much as its weight on the moon.

How does the weight of an object on earth compare with it's weight on the moon?

On the Earth, the object weighs 6.04 times as much as its weight on the moon.

Who much does mars weight?

On Mars, you weigh 37.7% as much as you would on Earth. If you weigh 100 pounds on Earth, you weigh only 37.7 pounds on Mars. If you weigh 150 pounds on Earth, you weigh only 56.6 pounds. The equation is .37 x Earth weight = Martian weight.

How much less do you weight on the Moon than you do on Earth?

On the Moon one weighs one-sixth the weight on Earth.

How different is the weight of an object on earth compared to the moon?

An object weight about 6 times a much on earth as on the moon

What is a skydivers velocity after 2 seconds?

Acceleration due to gravity is 9.8m/s/s, which is the same as 9.8m/s2. An acceleration of 9.8m/s/s means that with each passing second, the velocity of the skydiver increases by 9.8m/s. Therefore, after two seconds. a skydiver's velocity would be 19.6m/s. The acceleration will continue at 9.8m/s/s until the skydiver reaches terminal velocity, at which point the weight of the skydiver and the air resistance will be balanced, so the net force acting on the skydiver will be zero, at which point there will be no further acceleration.

What is 26 miles from earth?

The distance a skydiver plans to leap head first from a balloon and hurtle towards Earth at more than 1,100mph.

What actors and actresses appeared in Beyond the Thrill - 2014?

The cast of Beyond the Thrill - 2014 includes: Nick Halseth as Skydiver Greg Heideman as Skydiver Andy Junghans as Skydiver John Kreutchmeyer as Skydiver Alissa Olson as Skydiver

Is the weight of an object on earth the same weight as an object on Jupiter?

Jupiter is much bigger than earth so gravity will be more than earth. So weight of object on Jupiter will be more.
