Actually, he would still get pulled down by gravity, albeit at a slower rate. But he probably wouldn't die, so the idea still applies.

Might I suggest suit rupture as an alternate method of suicide?

Wait, is there any bleach in space suits?

due to the lack of air resistance he may in fact hit the ground at a higher speed than on earth depending on the height of the cliff

Well the average human terminal velocity on earth is about 54 meters/sec, and the moon's gravitational force is about 1.6 meters/sec/sec, so every second of falling towards the moon, you would fall 1.6 meters/sec faster. 54/1.6=33.75, so to fall on the moon faster than you could fall on earth, you'd need to fall for >33.75 seconds, let's just say 34 seconds. By the time you hit the bottom you'd be going 54.4 meters/sec, and assuming you're starting at a speed of zero, the average speed you'd be going is 27.2 meters/sec for 34 seconds. 27.2 * 24=924.8 meters.
He'd half to fall from 924.8 from the surface of the moon to reach a higher speed than his terminal velocity on earth.

I'm a total faggot for doing this, but I'm on ritalin right now because I needed to finish some homework and I wanted to figure it out

but wouldnt the impact destroy the air supplier or the helmet?

he would need a 60 meter fall. 10 meters are lethal on earth, gravity is 6 times weaker on the moon. and also there's no atmosphere so there's no terminal velocity

That depends entirely how he falls. He could fall from 12 meters or less onto his neck on the moon and die.

well of course, but i meant that height because that is one you can't easily survive even if you fall standing and roll, or whatever

Maybe, but the force that brings him down is only 1/6th the power. So any damage delt would be 1/6th. His body wouldnt really slam to the ground.

You're not taking into account air resistance on Earth. Depending on the height of the fall, impact could be a lot quicker seeing as a falling object on the moon continues to accelerate since nothing is acting against its movement.

It would slam into the ground if he picked up speed. At 12 meters you would hit the ground at 6.2 meters per second. Which could kill you if you landed on your head and broke your neck.
