They didn't actually drop it from the building so no one can say for sure :P

This is very flawed. It may travel at its terminal velocity, but it is using so much force to fire it out that fast. The effects should be much less "catastrophic" with a real test.

did ya take into account the wind would blow the penny like dust and just fall on another roof

They didn't even consider the non aerodynamic shape of the penny even from all sides. Would require a super high force possibly damaging your shoulder to throw a penny like so.

They should've just got somebody with cancer to drop the coin on because they really don't give a fuck they're dying.

Gravity dont exist. or only then the penny would go through concrete, in fact if gravity existed concrete possible wouldn't exist

The same physics would apply to someone bring killed by a bullet fall from the sky.

3x the speed of sound? This is nonsense because the penny wouldn't even been able to go that fast without compression. Terminal velocity wouldn't even go half that speed.

They shoulda made everyone clear the way then drop it off the building or drop it off something that's just as high

what about if your drop an iphone from the empire state building?? hmm

They didn't specify whether it was one of the older, heavier, solid copper pennies, or one of the newer, lighter, penneys that are copper plated zinc.

Throw a whole ballistic gel human body off a sky scraper and show us the simulation impact. I've seen after pics of jumpers but never the impact on concrete.

Hmm seems like to many things are missing wind and drafts between building seems the penny might be blown around a bit?

shooting a penny is not going to have the same affect as the penny naturally slicing its way through the air on its way down to earth.

The myth might not be busted. During some of the hottest days of summer, the concreate gets softer and the penny might actually get stuck in the pavement. Too bad they will not test this theory.

Simon Draurings

They did not even drop the fucking penny, how sad and shitty, what a terrible experiment. Terminal velocity and it's equation have at least one unknown variable called flow dynamics.. They assume that the penny would not rotate as it falls, another important variable. These guys call themselves scientists ? I call them hacks.
'tetsuoswrath' 6 months ago
Did they use a modern penny? Older pennies could be heavier. lol :{

One thing they neglected to investigate (or at least share) is the fate of the penny/pennies. I would like to know how the coin(s) did through these experiments. Did they flatten or in any other way deform due to the impacts?
