I'm bored, so here's a thread about f*cking up gravity!! :)

Imagine you're inside a car on an airplane going from Texas to Nebraska.. OH NO!!! The doors to the massive hangar just openened, and you are so freaking stupid that you're still inside the car, and you are sliding out.

Now you are falling to your death inside your car, and in some freak acrobatics stunt, you climb out of the car and you are now standing on top of it. You are clinging on to the car in an attempt not to fall off..

A millisecond before the car crashes into the cold hard ground, you make a sissy jump, off of the car, straight into the air..

Do you simply screw up gravity and slow down your speed with a ridiculous amount, or do you still get crushed by Newton's good 'ol friend ?


Vote!

You clearly don't have a good understanding of gravity...

you still fall to your death. by "jumping" off your car I'd imagine you'd be pushing the car down rather than going up yourself

If you jumped up, your momentum would decrease by a little bit. That little bit is usually relevant in everyday life, which is why you feel like it would do something, but it's tiny compared to the momentum you'd get by falling from the sky.

You won't be able to stand on the car, since you'd fall at different speeds.

i think if you jumped up at the same rate that the car was falling, you'd be fine.

notice i said think and you should probably just watch mythbusters doing similar with falling lift.

Instead of being slightly cushioned by the car seats you would slam against the top of a car.

If your legs are strong enough to reduce your falling speed to zero you'll be fine (they're not).

Nah you'd just die. The jump wouldn't even come close to decreasing your speed enough. This is why skydivers use parachutes and not large objects falling with them that they jump on.

The acceleration of gravity doesn't depend on the mass of the body. If you had the same speed to begin with, you'd always have the same speed.

They're not falling in a vacuum though, so wouldn't they have different wind resistance?

That's not accounting for drag.

The car would experience more drag, due to its shape and size and you being on top of the car. So the car would fall slower due to drag and you would fall slower because the car would be falling slower, so the car would act as some sort of floor for you. This is irrelevant to the OP question anyway.
