who knew that if you vomit while skydiving the puke goes up towards the people that are behind you.

The rate an object falls depends on air resistance not mass! Example: a balled up piece of paper falls faster than a flat one. They have the same mass, but the flat piece has more air resistance, causing it to fall MORE SLOWLY. (@mo). Also, a bowling ball will fall at the same rate as a ball of paper approximately the same size, despite their differing masses.
Fake. The velocity if the dive prevents the vomit from exiting your stomach. This was an episode of myth busters a couple years back.
Improbable, not impossible.
Guy below me is retarded. Puke is less dense than a human body, so air would have a greater effect on it. Derrr
oh wow really? i would have never guessed...
JJdoggie- stop being such a know it all besides you are completely wrong anyways they said you could not have a conversation not throw up a$$hole
thats why you dont sky dive hungover..
Haha modog. I love when people use poor grammar while criticizing others' grammar. Fail.
you made that up. all objects fall at the same rate unless there is an external force. IDIOT. and yes, it was worth making this account just to call you an idiot and feel good that im not you, making up text messages that are scientifically impossible.
External force = air resistance. Objects will fall at different rates depending on their surface areas. This is why skydivers use parachutes . . .
The rate an object falls also depends on mass. In this case, the mass of the objects is the greatest factor determining the difference in the rate of fall, not air resistance. The mass of the person is far greater than the mass of the vomit. The people behind him would fall into the vomit kind of like if car A and car B are traveling north, car A is in front of B, but car A is going 15 mph and car B is going 90 mph.
If there were no air resistance, all objects would fall with exactly the same acceleration (e.g. a piece of paper and a hammer would fall to the ground at the same time if dropped simultaneously). Air resistance matters because the greater the mass the more force with which it pushes the air out of the way as it falls. With air resistance, the hammer falls faster than the piece of paper because it has greater force as it falls because it has greater mass. So yes, air resistance does matter.
Objects in order of increasing surface area (which isn't mass dependent): vomit < person. Yes, on Earth, the gravitational constant is ~9.8 m/s^2. However, the equation describing the descent is Force=mass * acceleration. The greater the surface area, the greater the air resistance, which is the force pushing up, slowing the descent (the reason for the use of parachutes). In a vacuum, the person would hit the ground before the vomit because there would be no upward force. My car ex.
thats just not true, wasser. -9.81m/s^2 time and distance determines rate of acceleration and its integral in respect to time determines velocity. \n\nand unless your puking parachutes im pretty sure liquid is more aerodynamic than a person, tumblesofstumbles
Just throwing this out there, but isn't drag from air the external force here? Otherwise, who would skydive more than once? SPLAT!
Wow. It like a super g a y Bill Nye in here. Love it! Thanx college people and others. Very good stuff!
3.01 that was seriously the worst attempt at correcting English ever.
Puke can go upwards. Depends what the weather does
Your the idiot go back to summer school English class no such thing as more slowly try slower next !!!
lol ok first, relax. second, it's "you're" not "your." second, learn how to use adverbs. it's correct.
Wow never thought people would get bent out of shape over science facts and spelling/grammar.
@tickle\nYeahh um i'm 15 and I learned this shit in 7th grade. Doesn't take anyone special to figure it out
7th grade was a long time ago for most people old enough to do the stupid shit that’s on this website. haha It takes a special person to remember the particulars of 7th grade science..
It's clearly true it's on the Internet
I’m guessing not them...
Oh, I don't know, anyone who knows anything about science?
i want to know why you puked while skydiving...
Sudden feeling of weightlessness, falling towards the ground really fast, poor lunch decision, panic, involuntary... All possibilities.
Not possible.. Think about it
you're an idiot. it's another way of saying that puke falls more slowly than you do.
umm... all the people who dove after you?
I also like cheese!
I've been skydiving for 5 years and while it is possible to puke in freefall, it's most likely to happen under canopy. It's always nice to give a heads up to your instructor too. As for conversations, nope. We use hand signals and plan the jump ahead of time.
JJdoggie its totally possible to puke while skydiving. Its just harder to do then you realise. Lol going180mph you bet that puke is gonna hit people behind you!
I call bullshit on this one
No..you fall faster than the puke apparently does. And why does everyone assume that because a person pukes it means they're drunk/hungover. Every time I have drank and became drunk I never puked. The same with a hangover.
Well then you must have a very impressive genetic inheritance for that to never happen to you.
