Physics

A 55.0 kg diver steps off a diving board and drops straight down into the water. The water provides an upward average net force 1480 N. If the diver comes to rest 5.6 m below the water's surface, what is the total distance between the diving board and the diver's stopping point underwater?

  1. The energy the diver had when hitting the water has to equal the upward force and distance in the water.

    mgh=force*distance
    h= force*distance/mg=1480*5.6/(55*9.8) meters.
