# How much water would it take to fill the Empire State Building?

# If you were to jump off the Empire State Building how long would it take to hit the ground?

Answer: Difficult to calculate, but under 8.81 seconds. Calculating how long it takes an object to fall a certain distance is a difficult question if you want an exact answer, but if you're willing to look at a simplified model (ignoring factors such as air resistance/frictions, which would be co…nsiderable), a crude approximation can be reached. The acceleration due to gravity of an object is 9.81 m/s 2 (meters per second per second) down. The amount of displacement resulting from a given acceleration over time is .5a t 2 , where t is the amount of time (in seconds). The amount of displacement we need to equal is the height of the roof of the Empire State Building, 381 m (1250 ft) . After substituting our values into the displacement/acceleration equation, giving us -381 = .5(-9.81) t 2 . We can find our amount of time by isolating t . Doing this give us our final result of 8.81 seconds. If we assume that non-gravity factors would not be accelerating your decent, we can treat this as an upper limit to the result in real life. if you try you cant go past the bars How ever if you decide to use feet units you come up with 6.154 seconds. Acceleration due to gravity is approximately -32.174 feet per second 2 . The Empire State building is 1250 feet tall. So the height, Y, at time, t, 0 is 1250. The acceleration equation of the scenario would at first Y"=-32.174t. When we integrate this to find the velocity equation we recieve: Y'=-16.087t 2 +C. The integrating constant, C, would represent a starting velocity. Since the person "fell" off the building the initial velocity is 0, so Y'=-16.087t 2 . In order to find the position equation we integrate once more, yielding: Y=-5.36233t 3 +C. The integrating constant, C, in this case represents initial position which we know is 1250. So the position equation is: Y=-5.36233t 3 +1250. To find out when he hits the ground we solve for when height, Y, equals 0. 0=-5.36233t 3 +1250. This yields a time value of 6.1544 seconds. *Note: This answer also ignores air resistance. (MORE)

# How long does it take for a penny to drop from the top of the Empire State Building?

It takes about 2 and a half minutes. And despite what you may have heard, the velocity is not enough to kill someone, the air resistance is too great. They could get stung pretty good, and might break cause a pretty good bruise, but isn't likely to result in severe injury..............No someone has… actually died from someone throwing a penny of the empire building, yeah the air resistance is great but it has more weight in a penny ,just like if rain was a little more heavier it would kill someone or damage something every time it rains but the air resistance slows it down.

# A mole of jelly beans would fill up how many buildings the size of the Empire State Building?

A mole is 6.022x10^23 particles. To find the volume of a mole of jellybeans simply multiply the volume of a single jellybean (1.192x10^-4 ftÂ³) by 6.022x10^23. You get a volume of 7.178x10^19 ftÂ³. Of course that doesn't take into consideration the air spaces trapped between the jellybeans, but.…..yeah. So now you can just divide that volume by the volume of the Empire State Building and you'll have the number of buildings it would take to hold a mole of jellybeans. (7.178x10^19 ftÂ³) / (3.7x10^7 ftÂ³) = 1.9x10^12 Empire State Buildings. That's just under 2 TRILLION buildings the size of the Empire State Building. Truly, a mole is a dazzlingly huge number of particles and you can see why we typically only use it to count very small objects like atoms and molecules. (MORE)

# How much is the Empire State Building worth?

The value will depend on a variety of factors including the property leases, rental rates, other income derived from the property, the property's occupancy rate, as well as the general market's occupancy rates. The property will also depend on if there are any master leases or ground leases which co…uld devalue the property. The property was sold by Donald Trump and his group for $57.5MM which is grossly undervalued for a building like this and it was mainly due to the fact that the property has a sole master lease for 114 years through 2076. This master lease artificially lowers the value of the property because the rent is well below the market rate. Once this master lease is gone the property value could grow enormously. For example if the building, which is 2.5 million square feet of space, is 95% occupied with average rents of $40.00 per foot on a triple net basis for all of the leases, the net operating income would be approximately $95,000,000 per year. Further assume that a building of this stature could get a capitalization between 5.0% and 6.0% than the building could be value somewhere between $1.583 billion and $1.9 billion. This number could be even high or lower depending on the factors previously described above. Again, this is just an estimate, and I do not have all of the facts, but this should work as a general example of how the value of a building can be estimated. (MORE)

# What would happen if you would drop a knife off the empire state building?

Also, if anyone happened to be standing or walking over the place the knife was headed for, it would hurt, whether it was falling with the point up or down. (MORE)

# If you throw a penny off the empire states building how long will it take to hit the ground?

Acceleration from gravity is 9.8 m/s 2 or 32.2 ft/s 2 . The Empire State Building is 381 meters/1,250 feet tall. So if we throw a penny off the Empire State Building, its speed would increase by 9.8m/32.2ft every second. We will count every second's increasing speed. 9.8m for the first sec…ond. 32.2ft for the first second. We keep adding 9.8m to the speed for every second that passes. We keep adding 32.2ft to the speed for every second that passes. On the eighth second, the penny will have passed 352.8m or 1157.5ft. The current speed for the ball is 78.4 m/s or 257.2 ft/s. We increase that by half of 9.8 m/s or half of 32.2 ft/s (4.9 m/s and 16.1 ft/s). The speed of the penny will now be 83.3 m/s or 273.3 ft/s. There is 28.2m or 92.5ft. This value divided by the current speed is 0.34. This will be the seconds left before impact on the ground. 8 + 0.34 = 8.34 It will take a penny 8.34 seconds to hit the ground when dropped from the Empire State Building.\n.

# How much sea water would it take to fill Death Valley and how much would this effect sea level?

From Ocean Atlas and using you figure of 1-2 inches you would get with a lot of rounding 40,000 inches in on km leangth. Divide 335,258,000 by 40,000 and we get 8381 cubic km for each inch of ocean level rise. At its greatest extent the Lake Manly which filled Death Valley during the ice ages in …the past was 800 feet deep at it maximum and 80 miles long in a typical rift valley lake system. Roughly guessing I would put that at 80*10 or 800 square miles and if the slope is 45 degrees that would be as if it were all about 400 feet deep. Divide 400 by 0.3861022 gives 1036 square km, 400 feet equals 4800 inches divided by 40,000 equals .12 cubic km per square km. Multiply 1036 by .12 gives you 125 cubic km. 8381 divided by 125 means filling Death Valley would be equal to 1/67 inches of ocean water. Hardly seems worth the effort for .015 inches of meltwater.

# What would be a good way to measure volume of water it takes to fill a water balloon?

Take one typical balloon, and fill it up just the way you always fill them. When it's full and you're ready to tie the end closed, don't do it. Instead, take a big measuring cup, and pour the water back out of the balloon into the measuring cup. See how much water you have in the measuring cup…, and you have the answer to your question. If you want to be more scientific about it, do the same thing five times, and write down the five different amounts it takes to fill five different balloons. Add up the five numbers, and divide the result by 5. That gives you the average amount of water it takes to fill each balloon, even if they don't all take the same amount. (MORE)
