 Question 288888: I need help with this problem: The formula in Exercise 109 accounts for the effect of gravity only on a falling object. According to that formula, how long would it take a sky diver to reach the earth when jumping from 17,000 feet? (A sky diver can actually get about twice as much falling time by spreading out and using the air to slow the fall.) The formula is t = sqrt. h/sqrt 16Answer by Alan3354(30993)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The formula is t = sqrt. h/sqrt 16 ---------- ?? Doesn't look right. t =~ 65.2 seconds ----------------- I think it's 32.6 seconds
