Regarding this, is there a maximum speed for falling?
The terminal velocity of a skydiver in afree-fall position, where they're falling with theirbelly towards the Earth is about 195 km/h (122 mph). But they canincrease their speed tremendously by orienting their headtowards the Earth – diving towards the ground.
Also Know, how fast is Terminal Velocity? In stable, belly-to-earth position, terminalvelocity is about 200 km/h (120 mph). Stable freefall head downposition has a terminal speed of 240–290 km/h (around150–180 mph). Further minimization of drag by streamliningthe body allows for speeds in the vicinity of 500 km/h (310mph).
what is the fastest something can free fall?
Free Fall Speed Terminal velocity is the fastest speed that anobject will reach as it falls through theair.
Can a penny kill you?
According to myth, a penny dropped from theEmpire State Building can kill someone below. Mythbusterstested it out. They made a gun that can fire a pennyat 64.4 miles per hour — the same speed at which apenny dropped from the top of the Empire State Buildingwould hit the ground at.
