Homework Help: physics

Posted by farah on Monday, July 7, 2008 at 7:45pm.

In February 1955, a paratrooper fell 370 m from an airplane without being able to open his chute but happened to land in snow, suffering only minor injuries. Assume that his speed at impact was 62 m/s (terminal speed), that his mass (including gear) was 71 kg, and that the magnitude of the force on him from the snow was at the survivable limit of 1.2 x 105 N. What are (a) the minimum depth of snow that would have stopped him safely and (b) the magnitude of the impulse on him from the snow?
