# Can you hit the ground jumping off the Empire State building?

Of course you can hit the ground, but you will not survive. DONT DO IT

# How long would it take for an object to hit the ground from 1248 ft tall building?

In a vacuum, just under 9 seconds. In the real world, more than that, but it depends on the shape of the object and the prevailing winds and air currents.

# How long would it take to hit the ground if you jumped from the Eiffel Tower?

If we ignore air resistance and so assume constant acceleration (a): s = 1/2at2 ...where s is displacement and t denotes time. Since the Eiffel tower is 324m. …high, and a = gravitational field strength = 9.8ms-2, we can write 324 = 4.9t2 t2 = (324/4.9) t = +sqrt(324/4.9) = 8.13 seconds, to two decimal places. Incidentally, I rather naughtily threw a paper glider off when I was there last week, and that took rather longer to land...if it has landed yet.

# Who jumped off the Empire State Building?

yes someone has! well i dont really know but i know that 1 woman commited sucide and she tried to jump off the top but then she got blew back in from the winds....…..WIERD STUFF

# Would a penny and quarter hit the ground at the same time if they were thrown off the Empire State Building?

Not really. True that gravity affects all objects equally, but unless we're in a complete vacuum, we have to take into consideration wind resistance in the form of the r…atio... surface area/mass. Which ever has the greatest surface area to mass ratio will fall slower than the one that has a lesser surface area to mass ratio. Take for instance, an ordinary plastic shopping bag. If you ball it up as tight as you can, you reduce the exposed surface area while keeping it's mass unchanged. If you drop it, it will fall to the ground quickly. If you open it up and flap it around and then drop it, it will float to the ground slowly.

# What would happen if you dropped a penny off the Empire State Building and it made it to the ground?

The penny would hit the ground. In all likelihood, neither the cement sidewalk nor the penny would be significantly damaged. The air resistance would slow the penny down too m…uch for it to cause damage. See the Related Question below for more information.

# 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/s2 or 32.2 ft/s2. 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 second. 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. Terminal Velocity would slow it down much before it reached that point.

# How long would it take to die if you jumped off the Empire State Building?

Not long enough...

# If a penny is dropped off the Empire State Building how fast is it travelling when it hits the ground?

Exact speed is impossible to calculate because of wind resistance which varies as the coin tumbles in the air.

# Could you survive jumping off the Empire state building?

u most likely would die if u made it to the ground floor

# If you dropped a ball off a building from 84 meters high how long would it take to hit the ground?

We know that S=ut+.5gt*t here s=84m g=9.8m/s*s u=0 hence time is 4.14secs.

# If a ball was dropped from the top of Empire State Building how long would it take it to hit the ground?

It would take 1.20 seconds. Empire State rules!

# Has anyone ever jumped off Empire State Building?

Yes, since it's completion in 1931 about 40 people have jumped to their deaths off the Empire State Building (most of those during the 1940s). One woman jumped in 1979 only to… land one floor below, she survived but broke her hip. The most recent jumper was in 2010.

# What if you dropped two rocks off the empire state building one a lot bigger than the other which one would hit the ground first?

According to Newton, they would touch the ground at the same time. Answer #2: The above answer would be exactly right if there were no air to provide drag. Unfortunately for… this problem, but fortunately for us, there is air. With this drag to consider, you have to know about the weight of the rocks again. Drag is related to surface area which goes up by the square of the dimension (let's keep it simple and assume they are spherical) but weight goes up by the cube of the dimension. So if they are both the same density, the larger falls faster (even if only by a bit). To see this clearer, imagine the larger was feather-light. Then it would fall slower, obviously. So: it depends on density.

# How do you jump off the empire state building and survive?

By using a parachute.
