but what if you drop an empire state building off of a penny?
Everything falls at the same speed unless there's air resistence

If you just drop a penny the max speed would be 5 miles to 15 miles

why does anyone even care about when it falls, like NOT EVERYONE wakes up and thinks " oh let me kill someone but look like i acidentally did it off the empire tower "

they focused on Terminal Velocity with no consideration from the updraft from the side of the building which greatly decrease the speed of the coin since it is flat it has more resistance.

For some reason I don't believe a penny will kill someone. Dropping it from high altitude being so light it won't come down with the force to penetrate and kill someone. I'm very hard headed so I fucking doubt it it would hurt me

I was at the Empire State Building yesterday and this very question came to mind, even mentioned to my wife that the M.B's. surely have tested it. Then, this video shows up as a suggestion...weird. I know my phone listens to me and tracks my location because facebook sends me suggestions all the time. Why wouldn't google do it to?

Actually if you drop a penny from the Empire State Building then the air and the gravity will work together to get the perfect speed of 25 mph witch couldn’t kill someone or really hurt them it would just sting a little bit you would be fine

If you account for wind resistance, a penny could never achieve a velocity close to this.

Robot Destroyer
'Robot Destroyer' 2 months ago
The terminal velocity will be 16-20 mph and will not dent any concrete, and the wind hitting a building pushes up with a force enough to make a penny go back up from 16-20 mph and land on a window seal, if it made it down it would probably give you a bump on your head for 10 mins or so. That means a penny would not hit 60 mph, and 16-20 mph would be reduced due to how flat the face and tail of a penny when it spins, so most likely it would hit 10-12 mph at the max. So that people is myth busted.

A penny's terminal velocity isn't even 64 miles an hour you freaking trucks 😂
Rick Sanchez
'Rick Sanchez' 2 months ago
The penny's maximum velocity would be 40.23kph/25mph and it reached that after it drops 15 metres It would do barley damage just sting but the wind would be a problem Gravity pulls down the penny but then surface Tension would slowly Start increasing then it would level out the speed but it a building such As the Empire State Building it it was an air tight seal the penny would Travel at 320kph/200mph but it wouldn't kill anyone just injure them.

According to physics, terminal velocity should actually be 25 mph. U r using wrong data.

In fact it will reach max speed after it has fallen 22 meters for the troposphere will slow it down with gravity

'Danny BRITZMAN' 3 months ago
The architecture of the Empire State determines that there is a draft of wind blowing upwards. The penny never falls. It comes back up to one of the lower bits.
