##### Reference no: EM13711122

Solve the all parts of given question:

Question: A parachutist relies on air resistance (mainly on her parachute) to decrease her downward velocity. She and her parachute have a mass of 53.5kg and air resistance exerts a total upward force of 700Non her and her parachute.

Part A: Calculate the net force on the parachutist?

Part B: What is the magnitude of the acceleration of the parachutist?

I need help to find the magnitude of the acceleration of the parachutist.
