Relative velocity in free fall

If a person jumps out of a plane, and a few seconds later, another person jumps, why is it that the difference in their velocities stays the same? Shouldn’t it decrease because eventually, the first diver will reach maximum velocity, but the other diver will be slower at first, but then he reaches max. velocity [...]

A problem from Projectile motion

If maximum height attained by a body projected vertically upward is equal to two times magnitude of acceleration , then its time of flight is ………. ? (Divya posted) Answer: If you take g=10 m/s2 then H=20m At max height, v=0 H=vt- 0....
