Your job is to figure out your frontal area. (you have to do this on your own as the explanation on how you found it is part of your write up.)

Then taking your mass find out how much force (total) was needed to suspend you, and how much force per unit area (cm^2) was needed to suspend you.

Then doing some research on parachute drag equations, find out how large a parachute would have to be to cancel out your velocity. (cite your sources)

(explain what is happening in these calculations, can the parachute really stop you? Do the numbers make sense? why is the parachute bigger than you?
