# Free fall (distance and velocity) Calculator

## Calculates the free fall distance and velocity without air resistance from the free fall time. | ||

- 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.
- Comment/Request
- Thanks! This is exactly what we were looking for <3

- Purpose of use
- Checking whether the distance from the sun as inferred from Hesiod's Theogeny, where he indicates that heaven and the sun are about the same distance from the earth, and that if an anvil fell from heaven it would reach earth in nine days and nights. According to this page, he is quite wrong. In that time it would fall almost 3 trillion metres, but the sun is only 148 billion metres away

- Purpose of use
- Used it to find out how far an fnf character fell in a mod (1/1000 from the exosphere to the center of the earth)

- Purpose of use
- figuring out how far you could fall in ten minutes if you wanted to not experience gravity for a bit without leaving earth (turns out you'd fall about 3/8ths of the way to the center of the earth, have fun slowing down though)

- Purpose of use
- Found out the depth of the chasm in Bruno’s bedroom in “Encanto”—240 meters. Yikes.

- Purpose of use
- i wanted to know how I the La Palma Volcano was throwing lava bombs into the air so I timed from the highest point reached to when the bomb hit the ground! 397 meters. WOW!

- Purpose of use
- Reading a sci-fi book and curious the speed of traveling at 1.5 g acceleration for 4 years. Ps: loved the road runner/anvil calculation.

- Purpose of use
- Determining the height of magma fountain during a volcano eruption. On average about 3 seconds of free fall = 44 meters high. Interesting !!

- Purpose of use
- I wanted to know how far down the anvil in the roadrunner cartoon "Going Going Gosh" would have fallen in the 24 seconds from the time it was dropped by Wile E Coyote and the point that he fell past it on the way down. Wile E began to fall from a higher height 20 seconds after he dropped the anvil from the weather balloon and passed the anvil 4 seconds after beginning his fall. The anvil should have traveled 1.75 miles down by the point he fell past it, calculated by your web page.
