Section' 8
Answer two questions from this section. Answer in the spaces provided.
Fig. 9.1 shows a sky-diver falling vertically.
Fig. 9.1
The sky-diver starts from rest at time t = o.
His acceleration is non-uniform until he reaches a steady speed of 50m/s at t= 10s.
He opens his parachute at t = 20 s and decelerates until t =25 s.
From t = 25 s he falls at a steady speed of 5 m Is.
(a) (i) On Fig. 9.2, draw the speed-time graph for the sky-diver. [4]
