    Skydivers jump from a plane at intervals of a few seconds. If two
    divers want to join up as they fall, the second diver has to catch up
    with the first.

    If diver A has a total mass of 110 kg and diver B has a total mass
    of 85 kg, use the idea of forces and terminal velocity to explain
    which diver needs to jump first.
