Sooooo......having been to the Statue of Liberty I’ve seen coins in the pavement below it. Pretty sure a coin could kill you if the conditions were right.

what if you drop a perfect sphere or an aerodynamic teardrop shaped object, made out of metal or marble ot something heavy and solid like that? and make the circumference comparable to that of the penny.

Also the design of the building, it's ever widening sections on the trip down will inhibit the penny considerably.

Let me save you the trouble it takes 16-127 joules to penetrate a skull of a sheep or a cow. (Don't have info on human skulls) A 9mm. bullet would have 541.5 joules of energy, while a penny dropped from the Empire State building would only have 9.3345 joules... So....ye (All assuming no air resistance)
But what if you drop a bullet?

what if someone shooting a bullet from the top of the building.. does the bullet also affect by terminal velocity.. huh stu?
Ziebell (3 months ago)
“Or perhaps he's wondering why someone would shoot a man before throwing him out of a plane.
The Anonymous (4 months ago)
no it's not, because of the surface area and the mass if the penny, the air resistance will make the penny reach its terminal velocity very soon

Some one plz tell the formula of terminal velocity andhow he calculated that the coin would reach terminal velocity at 15 meters
Srinath Sk (4 months ago)
How did you find what is the terminal velocity
Xlg (4 months ago)
Plutôt...c'est très stupid long video....the momentum is about 20 kgm/s (v^2=u^2+2as...intitial velocity, u = 0 .height; empire =380m ou there about...penny weight is 0.0025 kg)..suivant..its like a 1800kg car hitting you at less than a mile per hour (0.025mph or 0.04 kph) so thats a light little tap I would give a bad bitch to get out the way when I'm leavin her ass cause I'm too fly in my challenger, I ain't got time to challenge her😥

OH AND DON'T GET ME STARTED ON THE ACTUAL FINAL VELOCITY WHICH IS THE MOFOCKIN TERMINAL VELOCITY BASED ON DRAG AND THE STOCHASTIC MOVEMENTS OF THE PENNY ROTATING AND DOING ALL KINDSA SHIT IN THAT O2, N2 GAS MIXTURE FLUID WE BREATHE BABY☝

ocularnervosa (5 months ago)
It wouldn't matter anyhow since the Empire State is a step back building, meaning it's wider at the bottom than the top, as is required by NYC law to prevent the entire ground level being in perpetual shadow. Even if you dropped an object off the top it would land on the roofline of the bottom section.
