Miss E. deWater, the former platform diver of the Ringling Brothers' Circus, dives from a 20 meter high platform into a shallow bucket of water.
a. State Miss E.deWater's acceleration as she is falling from the platform?
b. What assumptions must you make in order to state this value as the acceleration? Explain
If there is no air resistance, gravity is what is pulling her to the bucket, or acceleration= g
9.81 m/s you have to assume she is on earth because 9.81 m/s is the acceleration due to gravity on earth. you also have to assume negligible air resistance because that could slow the fall.
