The terminal speed of a sky diver is 157 km/h in the spread-eagle position and 330 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.
