Compare the effects of gravity and air resistance on a falling skydiver before and after she opens her parachute.?

-- The force of gravity is unchanged before and after.-- The force of air resistance on the skydiver is greater before, and less after,because she is falling slower after the parachute opens.-- The effect on her of air resistance is greater after the parachute is open. Theincreased air resistance itself acts on the parachute, and its effect is transferredto the skydiver through her harness.

When a skydiver opens their parachute they move upwards?

When a skydiver opens the parachute, he or she does not move upward, but rather, continues to move downward, but at a slower speed. Sometimes there is an illusion that the skydiver is moving upward, because if there are several people skydiving together, and one of them opens a parachute while the others don't, you will see the skydiver with the open parachute moving upward with relation to the other skydivers. But they are all still moving downward, they are just doing so at different speeds.


Do sky divers go up when a parachute opens?

Sky divers do not go up, but they do undergo deceleration due to the increased drag incurred by the parachute being suddenly opened. Since skydivers, when being filmed by a cameraman, release their parachute first, there is a relative acceleration between the cameraman and the skydiver, creating the illusion that the skydiver is travelling up.


Why is a skydiver not in freefall?

A skydiver is not in freefall when they have opened their parachute. The move from free-fall to controlled decent under a wing.


When skydiver slows down from 54 meters to 4 meters by opening his parachute If this takes 0.75 seconds what is the magnitude of the skydiver's acceleration?

the magnitude of the skydivers acceleration is zero as he is decelerating by opening his parachute!


What happens to the air resistance as the parachute opens?

Air resistance will increase when the parachute opens, and the decent of the skydiver will slow down.

It increases.


What happens when a skydiver releases a parachute?

The main parachute system is designed to be released. This is done by pulling one handle, and through a system of a "three ring device" the skydiver falls away from the main parachute. He'll then deploy his reserve parachute. After landing the main parachute, and reserve pilot chute and freebag are located, all is packed up again and we're back on the airplane!


What happens to air resistance as the parachute opens?

Air resistance will increase when the parachute opens, and the decent of the skydiver will slow down.
