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)?

  • physical science -

    When forward velocity is 40 m/s, the downward velocity is zero.
