# Do you believe a 60 feet tall giant would die if he falls from a 30 feet building?

Here's ma theory... if a 6' man falls from like a 3' chair... nothing's gonna happen... some small injury at most... right?

Of course if he falls from a 30' building he'd die for sure... and if he's lucky enough to survive da fall... well he'd be bound to a wheelchair for da rest of his life...

So if a 60' tall giant falls from a 30' building it's like a 6' man falling from a 3' chair... right? So nothing's gonna happen in his case...

But wot do u believe?

• That'd be like if I fell 2.5 feet... so no.

• okay here's the issue everything falls at roughly the same rate. and impact comes from speed and mass. so your theoretical giant would weigh in at roughly 810 lbs (that's 3 lbs per inch over 6' and 160 lbs at 6') and would hit the ground at roughly 30 MPH. In force that would be about 658178 newtons of force (147964.26 foot pounds) see:hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/flobi.html for details.
So how much force can your theoretical giant take before damage? There are two parts of the body: bone, and soft tissue (organs) at 158,000 foot pounds even at 10 times strength and density bones would snap, and organs would rupture, because the body would have more time to gain momentum (about 2 seconds of falling time) it just couldn't survive the fall.

• very detailed answer... but I assume giant would weigh like 1600 lbs... compared wid a 6' guy weighing 160 lbs...

• @takumii no but I have a degree in applied physics (electronics) and questions like this intrigue me. It triggers this, hmm... reaction.

• If you change the scale then you'd have to change physics for the giant.

The giants body would have to be adapted to the size. The tissue, the bone, all of it would have to be unique to the giant or else just walking or even standing would cause injury.
