Bungee Jumping Simulation Lab 2

Same situation as before, this time answer all the questions using energy equations, not forces.

In order to understand the physics we will start by analyzing the GIF below.  The Chrome Extension GIF Scrubber is necessary to answer the questions below.  A timing and measuring device can also be used.  You can assume that air resistance is negligible.

Question 1:  How far down are you when you feel the rope pulling?
Question 2:  At what point do you start to decelerate?
Question 3:  What would k for the cord have to be for you? 

Question 4:  Using the K calculated above, what would the length of the cord have to be for you to touch the river?
