    The first equation is solving for final velocity where as the second is solving for force ... probably the force of hitting the ground. Thats what I think at least. I`m probably wrong.

    it`s not the (final velocity = initial velocity + acceleration(9.81m/s^2) * time) that kills you, it`s the ( force = momentum * change in velocity / change in time). fall/stop.

    Vf = vi + at is a mechanics equation to work out the speed, particularly of falling objects

    but Force = mass x acceleration (or change in speed over time) is what affects what force you`d feel from falling

    The equation for velocity (the first equation) does not account for the mass of the object, without mass there can be no force. Therefore, if you had no mass your brains wouldn`t splatter at impact. However, you do have mass and therefore your brains will splatter at impact. That`s the joke, not very funny really.

    First equation is used for calculating speed. Second one is used for calculating velocity.

    Therefore, as others have already said, its not the speed of the fall that will kill you, its the force at which you fall.

    @Crayola96 No, the first equation is velocity, not calculating speed. Speed and velocity are fundamentally different. Speed does not account for direction, velocity does. The second equation is force, not velocity. That`s what the big "F" means.

    Someone already said it, but...

    It`s not the fall that kills you, it`s the sudden stop at the end.

    First equation is for the final velocity at impact. Second equation is for the force of impact, determined by the change in velocity over the change in time, multiplied by the mass. Large change in velocity over a short period of time (ie sudden stop) = big force.

    Velocity of a falling object is equal to the initial velocity of the object, plus the altitude of the object and the time it takes the object to fall. The force of impact is equal to the mass of the object times the Velocity of the object over the rate of time.

    Pretty easy, the final velocity is equal to your initial one plus what you accelerate in a period of time. In other words, if you are a dot in space, and you start to accelerate, i can measure your speed at any time.
    The second one is force thats generated by your mass times the acceleration you have, the more acceleration, the more force youll apply.
    Still, for this joke, they could have gone a bit further away, including terminal velocity, volume, mass, etc. Poor joke

    As a side note, why does the second equation use a capital T for time (whereas the first one uses a lower case t as it should)? Inconsistency much?

    Wow guys. Half of y`all have no clue what`s going on.
    The first equation is just an equation to figure out velocity with a given initial velocity and acceleration and time.
    The second equation measures the amount of force, or time to slow down an object which weighs mass, m, and is traveling at velocity, v.
    Basically the heavier of an object you are, the more time or force it takes to slow you down (without getting hurt) sooo don`t jump off a damn building.

    It`s not the speed, it`s the acceleration, or deceleration rather.

    Simple Physics:
    It`s not the final velocity (speed) that kills you, it`s the force of the ground decelerating you. Force = mass * acceleration, and acceleration is change in velocity over change in time (hence the triangle v over triangle t)

    Speed never killed anyone. Acceleration is to blame.

    It`s not the speed that kills you SEMICOLON it`s the stopping.

    Its not the velocity that kills you, its the sudden deceleration.

    Is IAB retarded or something?

    Geez, look at how many "math geeks" are failing at this one. "F" people, not A. It`s the FORCE of the impact. Yes, it is due to the acceleration. Technically it is the "impulse" that kills you.

    actually its not the change in velocity that kills you, but the uneven change in velocity. if your gut decelerates faster than your pack, then you will be squished

    It would probably be better described as the "jerk" function (the derivative of acceleration) which forms a characteristic and easily identifiable inflection point near the end of the otherwise-flat acceleration curve.

    if there should be any complaints is that the velocity equation doesn`t take into account for air resistance, learn your differential equations.

    for those of you who didn`t take physics but want to get the joke:

    What the symbols mean:
    velocity final = velocity initial + acceleration times time

    force = mass times change in velocity over change in time

    Literal translation:
    It`s not the downward speed that kills you, it`s the force.

    Actual translation:
    It`s not the fall that kills you, it`s the sudden stop at the end.

    I will admit, I didn`t really get the equations themselves. Physics has never been my strong point (or maths for that matter :p) more of a biologist.

    But I did gather that V is velocity and F is probably force. Plus the fact that there`s an obvious diagram of a guy falling. It`s rather intuitive.

    As Jeremy Clarkson once said, "Its not the speed that kills you, its coming to a sudden and abrupt halt".
