The terminal speed of a sky diver is 140 km/h in the spread-eagle
position and 346 km/h in the nosedive position. Assuming that the
diver's drag coefficient C does not change from one position to the
other, find the ratio of the effective cross-sectional area A in the slower
position to that in the faster position.
