Unformatted text preview: off the bridge from rest using an elastic cord (bungee cord) having stiffness k . They wish to just reach the surface of the river, when A , attached to the cord, lets go of B at the instant they touch the water. Determine the proper unstretched length of the cord to do the stunt, and calculate the maximum acceleration of student A and the maximum height he reaches above the water after the rebound. From your results, comment on the feasibility of doing this stunt. 292...
