## A parachutist’s rate during a free fall reaches 135 miles per hour. What is this rate in feet per second? At this rate, how many feet will the parachutist fall during 2 seconds of free fall? In your computations, use the fact that 1 mile is equal to 5280 feet. Do not round your answers. THANK YOU!!!

**Answer:**

** Change of elevation = 163.**

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Given : 134 feet below sea level to 29 feet above sea level?

To find : What is the change in elevation.

Solution : We have given

Below sea level = 134 feet .

Above sea level = 29 feet.

**Change of elevation = Above level – below level.**

**We use positive sign for above level : + 29 feet.**

**We use negative sign for above level : -134 feet.**

Change of elevation = 29 – (-134).

Change of elevation = 29 + 134).

Change of elevation = 163.

**Therefore, Change of elevation = 163.**
