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

# How long did it take to build the Empire State Building?

It took 410 days, which is one year and 45 days to build the empire state building. That was over 200,000 hours of labor, during the course of roughly 14 months, to build what… was the tallest building at that time.

# 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.

# If person jumps off the Empire State Building will they live?

If they didn't have anything to break their fall or slow it down, then yes, they would die on the way down. The G-Force would already rip their skin out before they even hit t…he ground. Sorry, people. That was a little bit morbid...heh-heh...

# How many people have jumped off the Empire State Building?

over 30 people have jumped off the Empire State Building

# If you drop a penny and feather off of the Empire State Building which one will hit the ground first?

The penny will hit the ground first. However, if there was no atmopsphere then they would both hit the ground at the same time.

# 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.

# Could you survive jumping off the Empire state building?

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

# 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 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.

# 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

# 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!

# How long would it take you to walk up the staires at the Empire State Building?

Depends on how fit you are. My uncle Terrence is in good shape and it took him over 2 hours!

# A hammer is dropped off a roof of an apartment building that is 80 meters high How long will it take to hit the ground?

The hammer will take square-root(2x80/9.8)= 4.04 seconds to hit the ground. The distance is related to the time by s=v0t + 1/2 gt^2 where vo, the initial velocity is=0. The …answer is 4.04 or rounded is 4 seconds.

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

# 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.
