The unstretched length of the cord is 30.0m and it stretches an additional 20.0m when the jumper is at the lowest point. Find the spring constant of the cord assuming air resistance is negligible and the cord is massless. 4. The 52.0kg woman pictured at the right falls into the safety net and stretches it 0.500m. The net springs back and she flies through the third story window 9.00m above the net at a speed of 13.0m/s. Find (a)the height of the window she fell from and (b)the effective spring constant of the safety net....
