• So it turns out a squirrel would need
to fall about 4800 miles in order to
die because that would give it time
to starve to death because they can
survive terminal velocity

    • Fact checked. Technically yes this is true but the squirrel would die of dehydration before starving after 5-8 days

    • Squirrels terminal velocity is only 14 meters per second so it is very believable. Humans is 53 m/s and we are much more fragile, so this is entirely believable

    • Fun fact! The weight of an object is proportional to its mass and therefore to the cube of its length scale, but its drag is only proportional to the square of its length scale, so larger objects generally have higher terminal velocities! You can see this in water droplets of varying sizes

    • I did the math on this yesterday. Falling from 7,724 km (4,800 mi) it would take a squirrel falling at 14 m/s 6.385 days to hit the ground. What would actually happen is the squirrel would impact the ground in about 21 minutes, hitting the ground at 27,000 mph.

    • The principal is called square-cube law. Small objects have a much greater proportion of surface area to volume which means a squirrel has more area to disperse its weight upon impact and not much weight to provide falling force. It’s also the reason small animals are bad at retaining body heat.
