Parachuting [electronic resource]: Moving Bodies With Constant Mass

EBS Trust (Firm)
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
This program uses a parachutist to demonstrate the effects of drag on the force of gravity, showing how to make mathematical approximations and how the resultant forces can be equated to the product of mass and acceleration. A first-order differential equation is then used to find the minimum height from which a parachutist can jump without injury.
