QUESTION

# Terminal Velocity. The Terminal Velocity of an object can be calculated as: W is the weight of the object V _ 2 * W Cd is the drag coefficient _ Cd *...

).

5)    Determine whether the situation is possible by checking the following criteria:

·      If the altitude is positive and the final velocity of the hero is less than his/her Terminal Velocity, the hero is able to catch the person.

·      If the final altitude is negative, then it is not possible for the hero to catch the person.

·      If the final velocity of the hero is greater than his/her terminal velocity, check to see if it is possible for the hero to catch the person once he/she has reached Terminal Velocity as follows:

o if the Terminal Velocity of the hero is less than the Terminal Velocity of the person, it is not possible for the hero to catch the person

o determine the time at which the hero reaches Terminal Velocity

( )

o determine the altitude of both individuals at this point in time

o solve for the time when the hero catches the person by using the first altitude equation for both people, using the altitudes found in the previous step for the initial altitude and solving for the time at which they are equal

NOTE: you do not need to use Newton Raphson for this

o determine the altitude at which the hero catches the falling person; if the altitude is negative, it is not possible for the hero to catch the person; if the altitude is positive, it is possible for the her to catch the person

6)    Display whether the hero saves the falling person or not as well as the altitude at which the person is saved.
