A 75 kg student jumps off a bridge with a 12-m-long bungee cord tied to his feet. The massless bungee cord has a spring constant of 430 N/m.

**a) **How far below the bridge is the student’s lowest point?

**b) **How far below the bridge is the student's resting position after the oscillations have fully stopped?

Step 1

(a) The gravitational potential energy is converted into the spring potential energy

Step 2

Substitute the values,

Step 3

(b) When the oscillation is died of, the gravitational force acting on the jumper is equal t...
