if someone is inside a crate filled with water and falls from a height high enough to kill someone will they survive?
1. How large is the crate?
2. How large is the person?
3. How heavy is the crate?
4. Exactly how high up was the crate when it was dropped?
5. What material is the crate made out of?
6. Why the fuck do you need to know?
i just wanna know if under any circumstances it will work from a deadly height like 100ft
what if you made a lot of fish swim up against the top of the crate
would it fly?
I believe, and could be wrong, that shock waves in a liquid are far more damaging than in air due to the density.
Example, fishing using grenades.
However with the box breaking open as it hits, if it was designed to split before the shockwave got generated then, person may survive. Think Niagra falls/barrel in reverse.
Only if they shake their flippers fast enough to generate quantum electricity which would grasp the air, like a brush graspshair, due to quantum tunneling, and it would make swimming through the air ease thus affecting their quantum aerodynamics by creating an alternating current field in their quantum propulsion systems
If the crate is completely closed I believe it would kill the person inside. Now if the top was open the energy would transfer from the bottom to the top and outwards, the thereby expelling the water and the human. I'm not sure how high, but loss of energy is bound to occur and he wouldn't go high. He would then fall again but from a smaller height and have a chance of survival. Disclamer: this is all based on mental imagery and I have no math to back it up
this actually wouldn't be to hard to calculate. but I dont feel like doing the math. you need the geometry of the box, also you need the depth and orientation of the human. you find the terminal velocity of the box falling through the atmosphere. the human is moving at the same speed. then the box hits the ground and stops, but the human keeps moving, you calculate the drag of the human as he moves through the water towards the ground. the water slows his speed but because water has a relatively low viscosity and the water is not very deep, his speed is slowed by a insignificant amount. he hits the bottom of the container at nearly free fall speeds and dies. in addition if he survived the fall the water shockwave (cavitation) would burst his ear drums.
this might work if the container was 30 feet deep, and was filled with a more viscous fluid like oil
