Well Chad the energy stays the same throughout the entire jump. At the top it is all Eg. As it starts to fall it converts to Ek. When the cord stretches it converts to Ee. The amount of energy is the same
Hey Ace Explain the physics of bungee jumping with reference to Eg, Ek, Ee, and total energy. What about conservation of energy?
You use mass of the barbie, gravity and height of the jump to find Eg at the top. Eg at the top is equal to Ee at the bottom
Jene how do we accurately predict or calculate Gravitational Potential Energy at the top and Elastic Energy at the bottom?
Hey Sam why do we include a safety factor in the jump?
Just in case that the hump is inaccurate and the cord stretches to much. It is there to keep people safe.
The K-constant is how much the object can stretch and all objects are different so they have different K-constants.
Max can you Explain the relationship between the Force vs Stretch for a bungee cord and what is a K constant and why do different objects have different K-values?
Those are factors that must be taken into consideration. They are used to calculate how much the cord will stretch.
Hi Jamie how are mass, k-constant, and stretch related to each other during a bungee jump?
Hey Terra is water wet? (Is it Actually wet like technically and scientifically?)
