A parachutist who is loaded with equipment and has a mass m = 150 kg jumps out of a stationary hot air balloon. The velocity of the parachutist as a function of time in seconds is given by the equation:
The drag coefficient is c and g is the gravitational constant is g = 9.81 m/s2. In one MATLAB program,
Plot the velocity as a function of time for c = 9.0 kg/s. Use a symbol or different line-type for this plot and include a legend. Print the value of the velocity at 12 seconds with 2 decimal places.
This question belongs to MATLAB software and discusses about application of MATLAB in physics to plot the velocity as a function of time for given drag coefficient and to find velocity of parachutist.
