Question

A 70 kg diver steps off a 10 meter tower (initial speed is zero)

A 70 kg diver steps off a 10 meter tower (initial speed is zero) and drops straight down into the water. Once the diver enters the water, there is a resistance forceexerted on the diver that acts straight upwards. This is the force that acts to ultimately stop the diver under the water. The resistance force is a complex functionof the divers instantaneous speed, so you should consider only the constant AVERAGE resistance force due to the water. (A) What is the divers speed when he enters thewater? (B) Draw a free body diagram for the diver while the diver is in the water. (C) If he comes to rest 5 meters beneath the surface of the water, determine theaverage resistance force exerted on the diver by the water.

Could you also show work for the questions? thanks in advance!!
