Yep, you top-posted to Ann's response instead of actually reading it.

Gravity has the property of being totally predictable in the way it will
unite the ground and the skydiver with no parachute. Most skydivers
understand this principle.

Once again, you are URGED to read the documentation that Ann quoted and to
understand its implications. Then, if you are still convinced that you
know what you are doing and can defeat the laws of Physics and of Murphy,
you should at least be be capable of working out by yourself both the
correct relative locations for all the pieces and the value for the parameter.
