Members of a skydiving club were given the following data to use in planning their jumps. In the table, d is the distance fallen from rest by a skydiver in a “free-fall stable spread position” versus the time of fall t . (a) Convert the distances in feet into meters, (b) Graph d (in meters) versus t . (c) Determine the value of the terminal speed v t by finding the slope of the straight portion of the curve. Use a least-squares fit to determine this slope.
