A skydiver with a weight of 185 lbs is falling. At a certain moment the force of air resistance on the sky diver is 145 lbs. What is the skydiver's acceleration at this moment? (Hint: Remember that the weight of an object is given by mg.)

AND When the skydiver reaches a terminal velocity, what will be the new force of air resistance?
