i dont know why some of these plebs are saying its possible

all you would be doing is kicking the object down with gravity + leg force downwards. you wouldnt really be slowing down or going up unless the object was falling slower than you.

#77 - greyhoundfd (07/05/2016) [-]
To be honest, if you had strong enough legs it might work. After all, it's not the fall that kills you but the impact. If you had enough leg strength to reverse your speed or at least set it to 0 relative to the ground, you'd be fine.
#84 - anon (07/05/2016) [-]
If you had that much leg strength and your internal organs could withstand the acceleration of your jump, then you could just land like a normal human being does from a normal jump height. feet hit the ground, legs slowly bend to slow your torso's descent in a distance of about 1-2 feet.

Honestly all you really need is for your internal organs and bones n shit to withstand the rapid acceleration from fall speed to stopped and you wouldn't even need leg strength, just do a belly flop.

The logic is sound, but the problem is the difference in forces.

If you fall down an elevator shaft in an elevator, you could be going about 50mph+, so if you jump off the elevator floor with a force of 3mph upwards, you'll then be falling 47mph.

It doesn't work, you basically just die a little less.

Well, you could if you were strong enough to jump at a velocity that would counter your existing downward velocity.

Nah because you would simply force the plain downward.
User avatar
#58 - haroldsaxon (07/05/2016) [-]
That's not how that works. While you might make your platform drop quicker, you would simultaneously push yourself in the opposite direction. If the platform was falling with a speed of 5, you would need a force much greater than 5 if you want to hit 0, but you can hit zero.
#61 - baditch (07/05/2016) [-]
I guess you're right
User avatar
#57 - Maroon (07/05/2016) [-]
The plane would have way more mass then you. It would get pressed down, yes but you'd also have an equal force push you up (half of what you generate would push it down, and half would push you up). The force would have a much greater effect on your smaller mass.
#49 - yehnz (07/05/2016) [-]
As a kid I wondered how a life-vest was going to save anyone if we had to abandon the plane under emergency. Falling from the sky seemed like the only evacuation option.

say your legs are fine from a 10 foot drop, but will break at a 15 foot drop.

could jumping at the end of a 15 foot drop cancel out that 5 extra feet and make it feel like a 10 ft drop instead? 15 foot drop from inside an elevator for example
User avatar
#74 - chusmimax (07/05/2016) [-]
it could, as would make the other object smash harder the floor.
It's not as if you safed from nothing, al the inertia you lost was given to the object.

But in more hardcore cases, it wouldn't be enough

Do you have a 60 inch vertical?

I'm gonna tackle this like conservation of energy, done simply
math
Gravitational Potential Energy is mass * gravitational accel. * height .
m=whatever mass it is, g = 9.8 m/s^2, height=2 or 3 met.
Kinetic Energy is 1/2 * mass * velocity^2 .
Fuck I don't feel like converting ft to meeters, maybe let's compare 2m vs 3m instead.
In the beginning, it's all PE, at the end, it's all KE.
So PE(at the top) = KE at the bottom.
m*g*h=(1/2)*m*(v^2)
g*h=(1/2)*v^2
v=(2*g*h)^(1/2) [spoiler] The bottom velocity is equal to the square root of 2 times the grav. acce. times the height.

falling from 3 meters would yield ~~ 7.7 meters/second at the bottom.
falling from 2 meters would yield ~~ 6.3 meters/second at the bottom. [/spoiler]
results

So, if you wanted to jump at the bottom of a 3 meter drop (around 9 feet-ish) to make it like a 2 meter drop (around 6 feet-ish, you're guessing it won't break your legs), you'd need to be able to jump up at a speed of 1.4 meters/second right before you hit the ground, something like 3.13 miles per hour. Idk how possible this would be.

but my advice is the following
(Also, learning how to roll properly (ie parkour rolls) when you hit the ground would be much better unless you're falling really far or onto a bad surface for rolls).
User avatar
#68 - Haentar (07/05/2016) [-]
Oh hey, according to >>#53, the maximum recorded jump height was round 60 inches, or like 1.5 meters. Let's just do that conservation thing the other way round then.
math

(1/2)*m*v^2=m*g*h because it's still v at the bottom, h at the top.
v=(2gh)^(1/2)
v=the square root of (2*9.8*1.5)

results
v to jump that high would therefore be around 5.4 meters per second
and we need to jump up at 1.4 meters/second in order to make a 3 meter drop as fast as a 2 meter drop.

Seems doable. Huh.
Just don't lose your balance when you jump I guess.
Also idk what you'd be jumping off of at that low of a speed.
User avatar
#53 - ninjaroo (07/05/2016) [-]
Assuming you succeed at jumping Which is a big assumption. It's harder to jump when you're falling, and the thing you're falling with has to be heavy enough that you don't just push it away , the maximum recorded jump was 60 inches, by a basketball player. So HE could do it, the average human could take off maybe a third of the distance.

He cancels out a part of the momentum by jumping. I am sure it is possible to craft a scenario where jumping in the last second would prevent an injury, but if that scenario would be realistic...
#64 - raunchyftw (07/05/2016) [-]
Try jumping down like 10 feet with a metal pallet below your feet, you won't be able to jump at the last second, because there is no solid surface to jump on, you won't get the momentum upwards from that pallet, because it is falling with you and getting the same acceleration as you towards the ground. It is not possible.
#67 - anon (07/05/2016) [-]
the example used was an elevator not a metal pallet.
User avatar
#69 - raunchyftw (07/05/2016) [-]
it's the same principle. You won't be able to jump on any platform that is falling with the same acceleration as you.
User avatar
#35 - dtox (07/05/2016) [-]
your legs would be fighting against the force that is the weight of your body dropping from 10 feet. If you were strong enough, it might work, but you'd have to be pretty damn strong...like every day is leg day strong.

If I knew the exact math behind it I could probably tell you, but I don't.

#59 - ilovemyguns (07/05/2016) [-]
Change in speed and change in velocity are very different, unless you were actively accelerating downward jumping would be fine.

#13 - mypickinuraxe (07/05/2016) [-]
Yeah, right? I would think "Well if you jump, you cancel out the speed from falling. Then you just re-accelerate downwards from where you jumped."
User avatar
#17 - Deavas (07/05/2016) [-]
that is technically true. but in order to do that youd have to jump with an instantaneous force to match the speed youre falling at, which is impossible. if you could, youd probably blow your legs up
#45 - anon (07/05/2016) [-]
Uh, here is my humble scienceanon explanation if u wanna read If you did nothing and just accepted your fate then the elevator would exert Ffall=m*dv/dt (F=m*a where a = change in velocity over time falling) force on your legs.

If you jumped and got airborne a bit before hitting the ground the elevator would exert two forces on you.

The equal n opposite force from you jumping, Fjump=m*a2(where a2 is whatever you jump at, around 17m/s if you have a 4 foot vertical)

Then the force from you hitting the elevator

Felevator=Ffall(m*dv/dt)-Fjump(m*a2) (the force of falling minus what you took away by jumping)

As you can see when you finally hit the bottom after jumping the elevator exerts less force on your legs and this is the result that matters in this case.

HOWEVER, it's important to remember that the total force exerted on your legs is the same if you jump or not, jumping early enough to get into the air but not hit the elevator roof just splits it up into two lesser forces, but because our legs re-extend after being compressed we can assume the forces don't add together to damage our legs as long as you actually get into the air for a bit.

What if you invented shoes with a hyper pressurized foam capsule, so it would slow your rate of fall using air friction and your have a weaker impact to the ground or water though?

The plausibility of Atlantis is essentially zero as I've said, because if you think that it was some 100,000 years ago, we didn't have the tech to make a civilization like that. If you think Plato's account, which contains real people living at the time in it is real, then there would be loads of evidence for it as well. There isn't.

When evidence is extremely strong, certain things can be considered true, and this is the case with Atlantis. If tomorrow there is some amazing discovery that brings irrefutable evidence for this island, then I will accept it as being true.

But life is too short to think such ridiculous claims are true in the absence of any evidence. It's like thinking that:

"hey, maybe the boogeyman is what causes SIDS sudden infant death syndrome . I mean, we know that it's a combination of different factors and isn't totally understood. No one has any evidence that the boogeyman is involved, but it's plausible because someone told me they saw him once.".

Ruling out ideas like my example and your Atlantis one immediately is basically science 101. The most plausible cause is generally the correct one.
#72 - auryn (06/30/2016) [-]
What is the most plausible is dependant upon a certain factors that are limited and partial on their own, not to consider all factors that we aren't even aware of.
It remains some sort of extrapolation of everything within our limited scope, and in no way necessarily reflects truths.

With this kind of mentality what happens, and what has been happening for a long time in the scientific field, is confirmation bias.
