EX3.1Parachute Example The airplane releases its drag chute at t=0. Through several tests, it was found that the velocity fits the equation: s m t v / 32 . 0 1 80 + = What is the plane’s acceleration at t= 3 sec? How far does the plane go during the time from t=0 to t=10 seconds? What general relationship will you use? Now Differentiate and find acceleration at t=3 sec.
