`h = 1/2 *g *t^2`

Enter a value for all fields

The **Free Fall (distance)** calculator compute the distance that an object will be in free fall based on the duration of the fall (t) and the acceleration due to gravity (g) .

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

- (
**t**) This is the height of the free fall

**Free Fall Distance (h):** The calculator returns the distance in meters. However this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.

Distance 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, t is the time it takes for the object in question to fall a given distance (Height) with it's acceleration of g (the acceleration at sea level due to gravity, roughly 9.8 m/s^2).

The formula for the distance of free fall is:

h = ½·g·t²

where:

- h is the height of the free fall
- t is the time duration of a free fall
- g is the acceleration due to gravity
