    You might want to edit your screenshot so that your email isn't open as you can see your name if you care about that kind of thing

    I haven't done M2 yet but i do know that SUVAT is derived under the assumption that acceleration is constant.

    i'm also assuming the skydiver doesn't have a constant acceleration thus you can't use suvat
