Yes. Acceleration can be positive or negative. When he jumps out of the airplane and is in free fall, he is accelerating in a downward direction, so his acceleration is negative. When he opens his parachute, he accelerates in an upward direction, so his acceleration is positive.
Yes, until he reaches terminal velocity.
The man with a small parachute will fall faster.
They jump out of the plane and accelerate to terminal velocity.
The man jumped out of a plane using a parachute . *-*
As long as it is not accelerating (going faster and faster, or slower and slower), the forces on the parachute are balanced. Initially, the parachute will accelerate - in this case the forces are unbalanced. It will continue accelerating, until the force of gravitation is balanced by the force of resistance.
You do go up, relative to the cameraman, but you never actually gain altitude. When the parachute opens you accelerate upwards and you fell exactly the same as if you were accelerated upwards from rest.
The hippies man! fight the man! Peace!
The dead man with a parachute.
the man in the parachute
The man jumped out of a plane using a parachute so he would fall safely to the ground. We used a parachute so we could land safely on ground.
He lands on the island, the boys see the parachute man land and think he's the beast (that's why they started the "dance"). After the dance is over and Simon is washed away to sea, the wind picks up his parachute and carries him out past the reef.
weight would affect a parachute if you put a 500lb man on a parachute and dropped him gravity would make him travel faster towards the ground compared to if you placed a 92lb boy on a parachute as the parachute applies the same force to both of them but the man weighs more so takes more to slow down and therefor lands down on the ground first By Alister Kelly
When they find the parachute man in the forest
Stand on something tall, and toss the man into the air anyway you want
Simon disentangles the parachute lines from the rocks on the mountain top and the wind carries him away, across the lagoon and out to sea.
No not faster than Secretariat:)
AnswerThey see a dead man floating from a parachute. There was an aerial battle going on above them and the man was killed.they thought they saw the beast that was mentioned throughout the book. but it was really a dead man floating from a parachute. (like the person said above...) the man was killed in a battle.
The plane was on the ground, not flying in the air.
air resistance , maybe!
the dead parachute man
... to accelerate.... to accelerate.... to accelerate.... to accelerate.
The parachute that never opened
He is thought to be the man who has been hung by a parachute on the map, Shi No Numa
Because a dog does not weight as much.
The beast. which is a dead man that came down in a parachute.
