Enter the total time of free fall (s) into the Free Fall Distance Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Free Fall Distance.

## Free Fall Distance Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Free Fall Distance.

FFD = .5*g*t^2

• Where FFD is the Free Fall Distance (m)
• t is the total time of free fall (s)
• g is the acceleration due to gravity (9.81 m/s^2)

## How to Calculate Free Fall Distance?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Free Fall Distance.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total time of free fall (s).
• The total time of free fall (s) is given as: 50.
2. Finally, calculate the Free Fall Distance using the equation above:

FFD = .5*g*t^2

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

FFD = .5*9.81*50^2 = 12262.5 (m)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

total time of free fall (s) = 45

\${V2} = \${number 4}

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.

FFD = .5*g*t^2 = ?
