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 in the domain 0 ≤ t ≤ 35 s in increments of 1 s for a value of the drag coefficient c = 13.5 kg/s. 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 in the given domain and to find velocity of parachutist.
