  • Physics in Bungee Jumping
    • Forces
      • Stress
      • Young's modulus
        • Stress
        • You need to be able to calculate this to make sure you know the stiffness of the chord
        • This web address is great for a Young's Modulus overveiw
      • Strain
        • Original length
        • Extension
          • You do not want to smash into the ground
            • Original length
    • Energy
      • heat
        • This is wasted energy.
          • sound
            • Screams
              • This is wasted energy.
                • sound
                  • Screams
        • kinetic
          • as the man jumps.
        • Gravitational potential energy
          • When the person is on the platform
            • as the man jumps.
        • Elastic potential energy
          • Max at the max extension of the bungee
      • Gravity
        • Acts on your mass
          • Force down = Weight
