# Plot the Velocity as a Function of Time for Given Drag coefficient Using MATLAB

**Question**

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.

**Summary**

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.

JaneteHello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
