greetings, i have a question related to physics.. suppose a parachute decelerates at the rate of 2m p. second square. then will the net acceleration on it equal 2m/s ? because the acceleration from the ground while falling will be 9.8m per second square and deceleration is 2m/sxs.. shouldn’t the net acceleration= 9.8-2=7.8m/sxs ? please explain.

Yes, If there is not any other force and parachute is going at downwards direction, then net acceleration is 7.8 meter per second square.
