A canister is dropped from a helicopter hovering 500m above the ground. Unfortuantly its parachute does not deploy. It has been designed to withstand an impact velocity of 100m/s. Will it burst or not?
Not sure what to do.
Just plug in the values of the variables into the inequality and see if it holds.
(height)
(velocity)
(standard gravity)
so you can just divide it out.
so it will not burst.
This is not exactly an answer to a calculus question, so I don't think I have interpreted the impact velocity correctly.
