tarzan has a mass of 100 kg and is 200m above the group and wants to slide down a nearby vine. the vine can only hold 400n without breaking. assuming he starts from rest and moves with a constant acceleration what is the longest time it can take for Tarzan to reach the ground?

  • Physics -

    tension= mg-ma
    400N=100(9.8-a)

    solve for a. Then,
    200m=at solve for t.
