Compare the effects of gravity and air resistance on a falling skydiver before and after she opens her parachute?

-- The force of gravity is unchanged before and after.-- The force of air resistance on the skydiver is greater before, and less after,because she is falling slower after the parachute opens.-- The effect on her of air resistance is greater after the parachute is open. Theincreased air resistance itself acts on the parachute, and its effect is transferredto the skydiver through her harness.

When a skydiver opens their parachute they move upwards?

When a skydiver opens the parachute, he or she does not move upward, but rather, continues to move downward, but at a slower speed. Sometimes there is an illusion that the skydiver is moving upward, because if there are several people skydiving together, and one of them opens a parachute while the others don't, you will see the skydiver with the open parachute moving upward with relation to the other skydivers. But they are all still moving downward, they are just doing so at different speeds.


At what altitude does a sky diver pull the parachute?

In the USA, the lowest altitude an experienced skydiver (D license - 500+ jumps) can open his parachute at is 2000ft AGL (above ground level).


What speed to most parachutists fall at before they open the parachute?

What happens after you open a parachute?

well after opening the parachute it will be filled with air so technically the individual will go down slowly due to air resistance .


What height do skydiver falling from 13000ft open his parachute?

After waving a lot to the cameras it was time to open the parachute and float down the remaining 5000 ft. Andre opened the chute and manouvered it around a lot to show me the view. He even gave me the controls of the parachute for a while. We landed after 5-6 minutes of parachuting down.http://babayaga.sulekha.com/blog/post/2007/12/free-falling-at-13-000-feet.htm
