That’s the premise behind this video of the supposed “first wireless bungee jump.” Let me be real clear: It’s a fake.As the cord stretches, it exerts an upward force on the jumper in the same direction that the ground would push.

Now, if we put this vertical acceleration together with the fixed horizontal velocity , we get something special, called projectile motion. On the next jump, I get a vertical acceleration of –6.074, which is closer, but you can see that the fit is pretty janky.

Motion of the Spinning Arm. I already have an estimate for the launch speed of the ball from the time it takes to get down the lane.

That means the pilot can control the suit by just changing the arm positions and not even having to adjust the jet engine thrust. Here is a diagram looking from the side of the flying Iron Man:Notice that there is now a forward component of force from the back jet.

With that, I can find a force-acceleration equation for both masses. With an accelerating mass, the net force is NOT zero. Notice that if the two masses have the same value, the acceleration would be zero meters per second squared (that's good).

To estimate the acceleration, we can look at the angular size of the back of the Falcon as it moves away. All I need to do is measure the position of the sides of the Falcon and use that to calculate the angular size in each frame of the video during the jump to hyperspace.

Even though the seat is actually accelerating downward (because of the gravitational force), it's good enough to get a linear fit and find an approximate post-rocket acceleration with the slope of this line at a velocity of 19.4 meters per second (43.4 mph).

A Physics Analysis of Every Jedi Jump in All of Star Wars. For these Jedi jumps in Star Wars, it's plausible to estimate the distance scale by looking at things like Ewan McGregor (height of 1.78 meters) or Liam Neeson (height of 1.93 meters).

Mercedes’ EQC SUV Makes Everyday Electric Elite “We wanted to create an everyday car, with a nice dynamic, comfortable driving, a fun car with torque and power, and to have a very safe car,” says engineer Bastian Schult.

If I had a view of the "falling" model from the side, I could easily get position-time data using video analysis by looking at each frame in the scene.Alas, I don't have that view.

Moving in a circle at a constant speed means there is indeed an acceleration.If we have an object moving in a circle, the acceleration is pointed towards the center of the circle and depends on two things: the angular velocity (ω) and the circular radius (r).
