Hi I need some information about a penny falling from the empire state building. I want to know if a penny falling from the empire state building would kill someone? It keeps accelerating at 9.8 m/sec/sec every second but woudl that be enough (after 1250 feet) to kill someone? what would be the pressure? do you know what motion formula might help me derive this? How much damage could the penny do? Any ideas of how I could recreat a similar experiment without having to drop a penny from 1250 feet? Thanks, M.W.
