    Purpose of use
    Just a lunchbreak discussion. Wanted to know how high of a jump you need to reach terminal velocity

    Purpose of use
    To calculate vertical landing velocities of skiing of various heights of cliff drops. (Although a calculator that accepted the height for the input would be a bit more useful as I had to hunt and peck.) Takeaway is that a 30 foot drop yields a vertical landing velocity of approximately 30 mph. In contrast, a 7.5 foot drop yields a vertical landing velocity of approximately 15 mph. A 40 foot is approximately 35 mph. It takes a little over 100 mph to hit 50 mph.

    Purpose of use
    Well, in my physics class, we are doing a project on bad physics in movies. I already know a rough estimate of the weight and distance, but I do not know the velocity for the movie clip I am using.
    Is there any way there could be a calculator to calculate velocity using distance, weight, and gravity?

    Purpose of use
    Calculate fall from a horse, force of impact
    [9]  2013/05/18 01:39   Male / 50 years old level / Others / Very /
    Purpose of use
    To determine the equivalent falling height for the vertical speed at impact of Air France 447, an Airbus A-330 that stalled and crashed into the Atlantic Ocean on May 31, 2009. I'll use the calculations to illustrate the force with which the airplane impacted the water, and was subsequently destroyed. You'll be able to read the details in an upcoming book "Air France 447 - What Really Happened" soon.
