An exceptional standing jump would raise a person 0.80 m off the ground. To do this, what force must a 66-kg person exert against the ground? Assume the person crouches a distance of 0.20 m prior to jumping, and thus the upward force has this distance to act over before he leaves the ground.

You are on the roof of the physics building, 46.0 m above the ground. Your physics professor, who is 1.80 tall, is walking along side the building at a constant speed of 1.20 m/s. If you wish to drop an egg on your professor's head, how far from the building should the professor be when you release the egg? Assume that the egg is in free fall.Take the free fall acceleration to be 9.80 ms2

A golfer hits a golf ball at an angle of 25 degrees to the ground. If the golf ball covers a horizontal distance of 301. 5 m, what is the ball's maximum height? (Hint: at the top of its flight, the ball's vertical velocity component will be zero.)

Acceleration of Rain drop
Under the heading 'Points to remember',my textbook states:
It is possible that an object can be increasing in speed when its acceleration is decreasing as in case of a raindrop.
I could not get why acceleration of the raindrop is decreasing. Should not it be constant as acceleration due to gravity is constant? Or there is some misprinting in the book?`Please help.

A helicopter carrying dr. evil takes off with a constant upward acceleration of 5.0 ms2. Secret agent austin powers jumps on just as the helicopter lifts off the ground. Afterthe two men struggle for 10.0 s, powers shuts off the engineand steps out of the helicopter. Assume that the helicopter is infree fall after its engine is shut off and ignore effects of airresistance. 
a) What is the max height above ground reached by the helicopter? 
b) Powers deploys a jet pack strapped on his back 7.0s after leaving the helicopter, and then he has a constant downward acceleration with magnitude 2.0 m/s2. how far is powers above the ground when the helicopter crashes into the ground.
