A paraglider is flying horizontally at a constant speed. Assume that only two forces act on it in the vertical direction, its weight and a vertical lift force exerted on its wings by the air. The lift force has a magnitude of 1900 N. For both questions, take the upward direction to be the +y direction.
If the lift force should suddenly decrease to 1000 N, what would be the vertical acceleration of the glider
