## How far is a 4 second fall?

For t = 4 s the distance will be d = 16 * 4^2 = 16 * 16 = 256 that is for 4 seconds the object falls 256 feet.

**How do you calculate fall time?**

Divide the falling distance by 16. For example, if the object will fall 128 feet, divide 128 by 16 to get 8. Calculate the square root of the Step 2 result to find the time it takes the object to fall in seconds.

**How do you calculate free fall distance?**

Calculate the final free fall speed (just before hitting the ground) with the formula v = v₀ + gt = 0 + 9.80665 * 8 = 78.45 m/s . Find the free fall distance using the equation s = (1/2)gt² = 0.5 * 9.80665 * 8² = 313.8 m .

### How fast does a human fall feet 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.

**How far will you fall in 2 seconds?**

19.6 m

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.

**How high is a 3 second fall?**

a is the acceleration due to gravity (9.81m/s^2). Pop in the numbers and do the maths – answer 44.1m. So the height of 45m is just high enough for the rock to fall for 3 seconds (and a bit more).

## How far do you fall in 6 seconds?

The formula I learned in high school Physics is s=1/2gt squared, where s is distance in meters, g is the force of gravity (10 meters per second per second), and t is time in seconds. So in 6 seconds, a person will fall 5 x 36 or 180 meters.

**How long would it take to fall 10000 feet?**

approximately 30 seconds

From 10,000 feet, this means you’ll be in freefall for approximately 30 seconds. From 14,000 feet, you’ll fall for 60 seconds. From 18,000 feet, it’s about 90 seconds. The longest recorded freefall was over 4 minutes by Joe Kittinger, who jumped from 102,000 feet in the 1960s.

**How long does it take for a falling object to fall?**

The calculator uses the standard formula from newtonian physics to figure out how long before the falling object goes splat: The force of gravity, g= 9.8 m/s2 Gravity accelerates you at 9.8 meters per second per second. After one second, you’re falling 9.8 m/s.

### How do you calculate free fall distance from height?

Find the free fall distance using the equation s = (1/2)gt² = 0.5 * 9.80665 * 8² = 313.8 m. If you know the height from which the object is falling, but don’t know the time of fall, you can use this calculator to find it, too!

**How fast do you fall when you hit the ground?**

Gravity accelerates you at 9.8 meters per second per second. After one second, you’re falling 9.8 m/s. After two seconds, you’re falling 19.6 m/s, and so on. Time to splat: sqrt ( 2 * height / 9.8 )

**How fast do you fall from a 50m high height?**

In other words, falling from 50m high is the equivalent of getting hit by a car going 112 km/h, or 70 miles per hour — what would happen if you ran out into a busy freeway. If that’s not a decent argument against free soloing, I’m not sure what is. Free fall / falling speed equations
