So if my physics is correct the wind resistance is pushing him back (relative to the pool of course) but it should be the same before and after the jump. So the only reason he should be pushed back is the friction from the diving board is no longer pulling him forward.
Yes I’m fun at parties
@waymo , unless it’s a lot of wind
@Sortofslobro, blowing him forward
@waymo, but what if the rv is accelerating? He’d be going the same velocity in frame 2 as both he and the rv were in frame 1, but the rv is going faster than him in frame 2, so he misses. Basically, imagine it like the rv is parked in frame 1 and the asshole driver pulls forward in frame 2 right after the guy jumps (and then add 75 mph if you’re picturing this scenario on the highway)
@waymo , Technically, all he has to do is mimic swimming in the air fast enough to get back to the pool, then land face-first on the diving board as a trombone plays
@SimonPetrikov, Wiley's Law.
This is why I don't carpool
Physics is a bitch.
Since those lines are only around the back of the truck, I’m figuring it’s not indicating high or low winds but more so the vehicle is moving. That jump is the same as jumping up from a moving skateboard, and landing on the ground instead because again… the skateboard was in motion
@Dear Glob, ok. What are you talking about?
