A skydiver who jumps out of a plane that has a forward velocity of 40 m/s. That means that the skydiver has a forward velocity of 40m/s. Ignore the air resistance.

The questions:
What difference is there between the downward velocities of the skydiver who jumped out of the helicopter (with no forward velocity) and the one who jumped out of a plane (with a forward velocity of 40 m/s?
