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.

its not the speed that kills you, its the sudden stop... i only knew the first equation but the picture really gives it away

"It's not the fall that kills you, its the sudden stop."

First equation is your velocity.
Second equation is the force of hitting the ground.

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

The first equation is for your final speed at the moment of impact (the fall). The second equation is for the force that you will hit with (the sudden stop at the end)

common sence says that if you could fall forever then obviously a floor cant kill you...falling + blood on floor = death

hows that for math...

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

Pretty sure it means, its not the speed (v) or height (a?) that kills you, its the force of the impact (F)

Its not the fall that kills you, its the deceleration...

AKA falling doesn't hurt you, but hitting the ground does.

Velocity + acceleration x time. That's as far as I got

It's not the fall that kills you, it's the sudden deceleration syndrome.

It's not the fall that kills you, but the sudden stop at the bottom.

it's not math, its physics. those are the formulas for final velocity and for force...its saying its not the velocity youre moving at that kills you, its the force that you hit the ground with

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.

it's not the fall that gets you, it's the sudden stop.

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.
