In february 1955, a paratrooper fell 362 m from an airplane without being able to open his chute but happened to land in snow, suffering only minor injuries. assume that his speed at impact was 52 m/s (terminal speed), that his mass (including gear) was 86 kg, and that the force on him from the snow was at the survivable limit of 1.2 ✕ 105 n. what is the minimum depth of snow that would have stopped him safely?
yes. i agree with scientist’s prediction about the warming of alaska and all of the other five polar regions.

answer; ///i do believe that the correct answer is (smaller)
the angle is given by the arctangent of the ratio of vertical to horizontal distance.
arctan(14/12) ≈ 49.4°
