I need help with some questions -- additional physics watch

    • Thread Starter

    They are:

    1) An object is released in a fluid


    A) the resultant force on it initially
    B) the weight of the object and the frictional force on it before it reaches its terminal velocity
    C) its acceleration after it reaches its terminal velocity
    D) the resultant force on it when it moves as its terminal velocity

    3) A parachutist of mass 70kg supported by a parachute of mass 20kg reaches a constant speed
    A) explain why the parachutist reaches a constant speed

    ***Could you also provide an explanation as well as the answers because i am really stuck

    I've moved this into the Physics forum for you Hopefully someone will be able to help you out here!
