A 62.0 kg diver falls from rest into a swimming pool from a height of 3.50 m. It takes 1.92 s for the diver to stop after entering the water. Find the magnitude of the average force exerted on the diver during that time.

  • physics -

    The impluse given to the diver is equal to the momentum change.

    First, find the velocity at impact.

    vf=sqrt(2*g*h)
    Then, in the water,
    Forceaverage*time=mass*changeinvelocity.

    yeah you were right thanks.
