I am trying to work out horizontal ranges for a falling person from height (in 10m steps from 0m to 60m).
I have used this site http://www.convertalot.com/ballistic_trajectory_calculator.html to create a table of ranges and 'step off speeds' from Cross, R. (2008). Forensic Physics 101: Falls from a height. American Journal of Physics, 76(9), 833. http://doi.org/10.1119/1.2919736 covering speeds (Vo) from 0 m/s-1 to 4 m/s-1.
However, I am trying to work out if wind effects are going to be a credible factor with fall times of between 1.4 to 3.5 seconds.
Maximum resistance would be for a perfectly vertical person, worst case 2m x 0.5m in surface area. Again worst case would be wind effects the start of the drop to hitting ground zero.
Can someone help?
