`v_f = sqrt(2gh)`

Enter a value for all fields

The **Free Fall (Velocity at Impact)** calculator computes the final velocity of an object after a free fall based on the height and the acceleration due to gravity.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**h**) Height of Free Fall

**Free Fall Final Velocity (v _{f}):** The calculator returns the velocity in meters per seconds. However this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.

The Final Velocity of Free Fall equation is meant for the context of free fall, or constant acceleration downwards due to Earth's gravity without rest, **ignoring air resistance**. Here, v_{f} is the final velocity of fall a given distance (Height) with it's acceleration of g (the acceleration at sea level due to gravity, roughly 9.80665 m/s^2).

The formula for the final velocity of free fall is:

`v_f = sqrt(2·g·h)`

where:

- v
_{f}is the velocity at impact of a free fall - h is the height of the free fall
- g is the acceleration due to gravity
