# Question: How Far Do You Fall In 5 Seconds?

## How many feet do you fall in 6 seconds?

According to the laws of physics, a creature falls y = 0.5 g t2 feet, where g is the acceleration due to gravity (32 ft/s2 on Earth) and t is the number of seconds in free fall.

Substituting, you get 0.5 * (32 * 62), or 576 feet.

Not too far off.

Fun with Fantasy Physics..

## How many feet does a person fall per second?

What it means is that if we fall for one second we’ll reach a speed of 32 feet per second. After two seconds we reach 64 feet per second. The speed rises as the square root of height, but in direct proportion to time. So acceleration is trickier than it might first seem.

## What is the highest fall survived?

And Serbian flight attendant Vesna Vulović holds the Guinness world record for the longest survived fall — over 30,000 feet — after her plane blew up in the 1970s, though some cynics think the real height of Vulović’s fall was a mere 2,600 feet.

## How far do you fall in 2 seconds?

The first equation shows that, after one second, an object will have fallen a distance of 1/2 × 9.8 × 12 = 4.9 m. After two seconds it will have fallen 1/2 × 9.8 × 22 = 19.6 m; and so on.

## Do heavier objects fall faster?

In real life, heavier objects sometimes fall faster than light objects, but not because of gravity. Gravity makes all objects increase their speed at the same rate, regardless of how big they are. But if you drop 2 things outside, the air molecules may slow down one thing more than another.

## How fast does a human fall?

about 200 km/hThe speed, achieved by the human body in free fall, is a function of several factors; including the body’s mass, orientation, and skin area and texture. In stable, belly-to-earth position, terminal velocity is about 200 km/h (120 mph).

## How fast do you hit the water from 10 meters?

Landing horizontally like a “pancake” will feel like hitting concrete. Jumping from a height of 10 feet (3 meters) you will hit the water at a speed of 17 mph or 27 kph. Even cars sustain damage with that amount of impact.

## How long would it take to fall 40000 feet?

With an open parachute, it takes about 24 and a half minutes to descend from 40,000 feet. The landing speed is about 14 miles an hour. Note: This calculation is in reference to a round parachute. Without an open parachute, it takes a little over three minutes and the landing speed is about 110 miles per hour.

## Do you pee when you skydive?

Don’t pee. Hold it. The best part is about to happen. At altitude the door of the plane will open and a huge rush of air will sweep the cabin of the plane.

## Can you survive a 50 foot fall?

There is possiblity of survival if you are lucky enough to fall on very soft sheets or water or you land properly on your legs with bone injuries. Any hard surfaces like cement blocks/stones or improper landing like directly hitting on head first with powerful force can lead you to death within 50 feet height.

## How far do you fall in 3 seconds?

I would say you would fall between 42 – 60 feet in just under 3 seconds. A human being hits terminal velocity at around 8 seconds at 150 ft/s, but as you are approaching terminal velocity, that first second you fall about 8 feet, the second you fall about 14 feet, and the third about 20 feet.

## How far do you freefall in 10 seconds?

We usually estimate around 10 seconds for the first 1,000 feet, then 5 seconds for each 1,000 feet after that.

## How long does it take to fall 30000 feet?

about 157 secondsGiven the standard atmosphere from 30,000 feet MSL to sea level, and with a terminal velocity of around 53 m/sec near sea level, it will take a human about 157 seconds to fall that 30,000 feet Without a parachute.

## How many seconds does it take to fall 100 feet?

(Here’s the link to the first one. The first question was about a drop from 100 feet and an aircraft traveling 140 miles per hour. From 1,000 feet the time it would take a human to fall would be about 9 seconds.

## How fast is one G in mph?

For example: An acceleration of 1 g equates to a rate of change in velocity of approximately 35 kilometres per hour (22 mph) for each second that elapses.

## How fast do you hit the ground parachuting?

6 meters per secondParachutes are designed to reduce your terminal velocity by about 90 percent so you hit the ground at a relatively low speed of maybe 5–6 meters per second (roughly 20 km/h or 12 mph)—ideally, so you can land on your feet and walk away unharmed.

## What is the fastest free fall speed?

833.9mphAustrian Felix Baumgartner has become the first skydiver to go faster than the speed of sound, reaching a maximum velocity of 833.9mph (1,342km/h). In jumping out of a balloon 128,100ft (24 miles; 39km) above New Mexico, the 43-year-old also smashed the record for the highest ever freefall.
