When a parachute opens, the air exerts a large drag force on it.This upward force is initially greater than the weight of the skydiver and, thus, slows him down. Suppose the weight of the skydiver is 956 N and the dragforce has a magnitude of 1005 N. The mass of the sky diver is 97.6 kg. What are the magnitude and direction of his acceleration?
