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.

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.
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).
h = ½·g·t²
