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
Gravity pulling the skydiver to the ground as well as wind resistance pushing up on the skydiver.

Certainly. Say you have an object that has been falling through the air for a long time, say a skydiver. After falling for a long time, the skydiver will fall at a constant velocity. This is called terminal velocity, and this is when the air resistance pushing up around the skydiver is equal to the force of gravity pulling the skydiver down. The skydiver is not accelerating. By using F= ma, with zero acceleration, there is zero net force. The skydiver is moving as if there are no forces acting on the skydiver.
You do realise ghosts skydive too? It's in the blood. I think that a tandem has been done with a student who was in excess of 100 years old.
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.
A skydiver have the greatest kinetic energy as he/she wants to hit the water.
The acceleration will be 0.7 of the initial acceleration. 0.7x9.81=6.87m/s^2
The cast of Skydiver Felix Baumgartner Leaps to Record - 2012 includes: Felix Baumgartner as Himself - 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.
For an experienced skydiver, it is 1:1, for a trainee and trainer it is 2:1.
It slows the parachute down, so that the skydiver can land safely
A skydiver is not in freefall when they have opened their parachute. The move from free-fall to controlled decent under a wing.
There are about 32,000 member of the United States Parachute Association. That's a close enough answer. Not every skydiver is a member.
About 1.0 to 1.4
You call someone who drops from an aircraft by parachute a skydiver.A skydiver, parachuter, or parachutist.
the mass of the skydiver indeed does effect the landing time :D
Work is the force times distance, so the answer is 2,850,000 joules.
Upon leaving the aircraft, a skydiver rapidly reaches something called terminal velocity. This is where the resistance of the air matches the mass of the skydiver. At this speed, the skydiver maintains a relatively constant speed. Typically this is around 120mph in a flat body position and takes approximately 10 seconds to reach. For more questions about skydiving, see the attached link.
why does a skydiver falls through the air at at steady speed because
Varies depending on body position and weight of the skydiver. Could be anywhere from 100 to over 200 miles per hour.
