Just watched part of a supposedly scientific tv show about falling bullet damage; on the off chance I’d learn something.

only took 40 minutes for them to figure out that falling and fired are not the same.

The world must be an awe inspiring place filled with wonder for people who are stupid and gullible.

  1. Falling and fired are equal if the object in question is a round ball where center of gravity is equidistant from all surface points and all aerodynamic resistance is uniform from every direction.

    For any other shape the falling position is dictated by the center of gravity and aerodynamic resistance.
