Homework Help: Physics

Posted by D on Sunday, February 20, 2011 at 11:43am.

Suppose that the terminal speed of a particular sky diver is 170 km/h in the spread-eagle position and 315 km/h in the nosedive position. Assuming that the diver's drag coefficient C does not change from one position to the other, find the ratio of the effective cross-sectional area A in the slower position to that in the faster position (Aslower / Afaster).
