A 42.1 kg diver steps off a diving board and
drops straight down into the water. The water
provides an average net force of resistance of
1559 N to the diver’s fall.
If the diver comes to rest 4.1 m below the
water’s surface, what is the total distance be-
tween the diving board and the diver’s stop-
ping point underwater? The acceleration due
to gravity is 9.81 m/s2 .
Answer in units of m
