I had this elaborate example all set up to lay my question out. and I can hear my x wife in my head. "you over think everything" So here is my question. I do not understand free falls 93feet/sec /second. this sounds to me that Tim would be doing 279 feet per second after only 3 seconds. ?? If Tim fell 1 mile. how long till he reached ground? Please. K.I.S.I.S keep it simple I'm stupid.
