Best Answer

I presume you mean 1 second after jumping from the plane. Since skydiver's fall, their velocity is generally in a downward direction, so the upward velocity is negative. The formula v = gt, where g is the acceleration due to gravity which is about 32.2 feet per second per second, tells us that after 1 second it would be about -32.2 feet per second.

### What is a skydivers downwords velocity after 1 second when falling from a hovering helicopter?

Neglecting air resistance his velocity after 1 second will be 9.81 m/sec or 32.2 ft/sec.

### What is the skydivers forward velocity after 1 second?

The skydiver's forward velocity after 1 second would depend on factors such as their body position, weight, and air resistance. On average, a skydiver in freefall might reach a forward velocity of around 120 mph (193 km/h) after 1 second.

### When a ball is thrown vertically upward at initial velocity of 15 meter per second Find the position and velocity after 1.0 second and 40 second after leaving your hand?

1 sec : position = 10.1 metres above your hand, velocity = 5.2 ms^-1.40 sec : position = 7240 metres below your hand, velocity = 377 ms^-1 downwards.

### How does velocity varies with the vertical distance traveled by the object?

When an object falls vertically downward, its velocity increases according to the following equation:2aS=vf2 - vi2 or ,2*10*S=v2, orv=(20S)1/2.There is a second case in which a body is thrown vertically upward, here its velocity decreases as it moves upward. Here its velocity becomes zero as it reaches the highest point

### How long is a ballerina in the air if she leaps straight up with a speed of 1.0 meters per second?

The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 meters per second2 .She moves upward until her upward velocity shrinks to Zero = 1/9.8 second.She then begins to move downward, and waits another 1/9.8 second beforeher foot again touches the floor.She is a projectile in a ballistic trajectory for 2/9.8 = 0.204 second. (rounded)

9.8

### How can velocity be expressed in units?

metres per second ms-1

### What is the change in velocity during the 2-s interval from 1 s before the highest point to 1 s after the highest point?

The velocity at the highest point of motion is zero, so the change in velocity from 1 second before to 1 second after is the final velocity after the highest point minus the initial velocity before the highest point. Since velocities at these points have opposite signs, the magnitude of the change in velocity would be the sum of the speeds at the corresponding points.

### What is the unit of velocity in SI unit system?

The unit of velocity in the SI unit system is meters per second (m/s).

### What is the unit for measuring acceleration?

1 metre per second velocity increase, every second. &gt; 1 (m/s) / s

### When is acceleration neg?

Acceleration is negative if velocity is decreasing with time. Since velocity is a vector this can occur in one of two ways: 1) you are slowing down in the direction of motion and the velocity in that direction is defined as positive (this is what we usually mean by negative acceleration) 2) you are speeding up in the direction of motion and the velocity in that direction is defined as negative. An example of this is an object launched into the air which immediately starts to decelerate in it's upward velocity, reaches it's highest velocity, and then begins accelerating towards the ground. If we call the velocity upward a positive velocity, then when it starts falling, it has negative velocity. Note that acceleration (due to gravity) is negative the whole time.

### What exactely does 1 mss2 mean is it as simple as an objects velocity increasing like eg 1st sec 1ms 2nd sec 2ms 3rd sec 3ms etc?

No, 1 m/s^2 means that an object's velocity is increasing by 1 meter per second every second. So, in the first second, the velocity of the object will be 1 m/s, in the second second, it will be 2 m/s, and so on. The acceleration is constant and the velocity increases linearly with time.
