    Purpose of use
    Calculate the height of a glacial face based off the time it took for a chunk of ice to fall from the extreme height.

    Purpose of use
    calculate d&d tom foolery of 720ft long jump moving at 50ft per turn(6second) and the height required to not grind off your feet.

    Purpose of use
    To understand the amount of impact I received
    35,000 lb Bulldozer tracking backwards at 6 mph. Tracked over a row of frozen ice 18"-24" inches tall. Instant impact and was injured. (Pretty much a free fall at the numbers indicated) Now I've been trying to wrap my head around what type of force I endured.
    I apologize my equation is all over the place but anything close would help. If anyone sees this.
    Thank you!

    Purpose of use
    Used to determine the distance from a well opening at ground level to the water level in the well. Turns out right at 100ft. We knew the total depth of the well was 278 ft, but wanted to calculate the volume of the column of water. 4 inches x 178 feet. So about 116 gal. Thanks for the help.

    Purpose of use
    Determining the height of the lava fountains of the Mauna Loa eruption. The free fall from apogee is 3.5 to 4.5 second so the fountain height is 200-350 feet high.

    Determine height of Ukrainian drone used to drop bomb on Russian forces if drop time was 4 seconds

    Purpose of use
    Acceleration of 1600km/h car at limit of sustained 4g for human survival - how long and how far?
    20 seconds a 4g would be super brutal, but reaching 1000mph in an achievable land speed record seems out of reach given different sites on earth.
    Loved the DND comment.
    [9]  2022/05/25 05:07   30 years old level / Others / Very /
    Purpose of use
    same as someone else posted, working out free fall distance for a DnD adventure
    [10]  2022/05/01 09:29   20 years old level / Others / Useful /
    Purpose of use
    Trying to explain to d&d player that if a rock fell for 5 seconds before hitting water in a dark sinkhole, that it would be at least 100m down and that he would be injured if not dead.
    Thanks! This is exactly what we were looking for <3
