Yeah they should really just drop the thing and watch it explode in the middle of Times Square.
I think it is fine. I like something falling gracefully. Not only that, but it's good to know that the ball isn't dangerous weight falling down
Lets see. If it was in free fall, how high would it need to be to last 10 seconds?
1/2 a * t ^2 = height, so
1/2 * 9.81 * 10^2= height
1/2*9.81*100 = height
9.81 * 50 = height
I think a half kilometer drop would be a little too hard to aim right. Also, you'd have to get the height within just a few meters, otherwise your problem is off. Then there's air resistance and all, so... yeah.
first we have to hide an a bomb in it then have all the politicians attend the event. problem solved
or have like one drop every second for 10 seconds!!! 10 explosions, 10 drops, 10 awesome crashes from like 100 stories up!! um whats m/s/s??
meters per second squared. Her number is the acceleration due to gravity. She could have simply said "free fall."
it ok dude i saw it, but how can it be 'per second' twice?? if its already per second why u got the second one? sorry i really suck at math im failing algebra 2 right now :/
oh wow thx
nothing they could do would make it more interesting.. not sure why all those people are willing to stand in the cold and crowds all day waiting for those few moments when it descends..
Then what would the tower-spear height be lengthened to?
I think it should roll through all the drunk people like running with the bulls but running with the ball.
