Best Answer

Surely you're aware that a falling object accelerates under the influence of gravity.

That acceleration manifests itself in the form of steadily-increasing speed, so the

time required to fall 186 feet depends on how long it has already been falling.

-- Immediately after it's dropped, the object falls the first 186 feet in 3.399 seconds.

-- It falls the NEXT 186 feet in 1.408 seconds.

-- It falls the next 186 feet in 1.08 seconds.

-- It falls the next 186 feet in 0.911 second.

-- It falls the next 186 feet in 0.802 second.

THE MOON IS PURPLE

Assuming that the shape of the stadium is a rectangular prism, and using the equation for the area of a rectangular prism (LxWxH=V) you can say that 600x400x100=V 240000x100=V 24000000=V The number of cubic feet that it would take to fill the stadium is 24000000 cubic feet.

that depends on which airplane you're talking about.

Approx. 6-7 sec.

If we look at this in a purely Newtonian way: Assuming you have no vertical speed at the start, and using gravitonic acceleration of 9.8 m/s2 (exact value varies depending on your location on the planet), such a fall would take approx. 8.6 seconds. By that time you'll be going over 152 mph. Realistically, you would slow down due to atmospheric friction. Skydivers tend to reach a certain maximum speed (before the chute is opened), which btw lies above and beyond what you could reach in 1200 feet. There are actually record attempts for reaching the maximum possible speed (where the skydiver plummets head first as an arrow to minimise the resistance on the body). I don't know the full effects of such friction, but can guess that over a height of 1200 feet this won't prolong your fall to beyond 9 seconds.

It all depends on how much you weigh.

If the air isn't slowing you down and the only force on you is the force of gravity,then you fall 2,712 feet in 12.98 seconds. (rounded)

it just won't take long

This would depend on how fast you were falling. In my opinion, it wouldn't take long at all.

Depends how airodynamic (fat) you are... and if you are wearing a parachute/skydiving gear.

At one foot per second, it would take 15 seconds. The Earth's gravitational pull is 32.2 ft per second squared.

Its approx. 6,378 kms.
