    If you shoot a gun and drop a bullet from the same height, which will land first??

    yes stoned, yes perplexed...

    Shooting a gun, dropping a bullet at the same time from the same height that the bullet is shot... which lands first? or do they land at the same time???

    Edit for anyone new.... i mean shooting the bullet straight ahead on a horizontal plane, no height involved, and definitely not shooting it at the ground lol

    from a certain height they will land at the same time. Will travel at the same speed eventually.

    I think
    *80 pushups before going anywhere in public crew*
    *manlets who somehow get laid crew*
    *8 mph over the speed limit at all times, no matter what crew*
    *enjoy our shirts shrinking in the dryer so they're tighter around our arms crew*
    *bring a sack lunch to work and throw it away every single time crew*

    *bears, bulls, cubbies, hawks crew*

    Assuming you shoot perfectly straight they land at the same time.

    They land at the same time. Doesn't matter how fast the shot bullet is traveling horizontally, it still has the same distance to drop so gravity will act the same way.

    EDIT: Assumed you meant the gun was pointed towards the ground. My bad. If gun is shot horizontally, theoretically, gravity will still act on both the shot bullet and the dropped bullet in the same way, so they should hit the ground at the same time. BUT, you have to take into account that the shot bullet is travelling very fast through the air and that may keep it up a bit longer or make it hit earlier depending on how the wind is.


    If gun shot at ground:

    Man how stoned are you? Of course the one that is shot will land first regardless of height.

    If shot from point blank, it will hit the ground before a bullet dropped from a few inches(equivalent of where the bullet sits in the chamber)

    Or if shot from 10000ft, the shot bullet will initally travel much faster than the dropped bullet. If shot from high enough, the shot bullet will slow down to its max falling speed and match the dropped bullet, but the shot bullet will have travelled much farther and still hit the ground first.

    Damn son, you're doin too much! Lay off that weed

    If the bullet is shot straight towards the ground then the fired one will obviously. They both have same mass, same shape so air fricition is pretty much negligible. The fired bullet starts off at a much higher velocity and acceleration adds to that, whereas the dropped one starts slower.


    edit: however as said, if you do shoot the gun horizontally they will both fall at the exact same time as the horizontal and vertical velocities are completely independant of each other, and we all know gravity acts in the vertical direction

    wtf? is misc on drugs tonight? If you shoot the bullet it will most definitly be faster then that of a falling object, but will eventually equal that of the falling bullet but will already be ahead. So the bullet shot wins.

    Shooting downward? Off of what sort of height? The shot bullet will land first.

    I had to reread it.


    He means if you shot a gun straight forward and dropped a bullet at the same time. On a flat plain, which would hit the ground first?



    I think thats the question.

    This is the same question as if you drop a semi and a feather from 200 ft which would land first?

    Neither, both would land at the same time in accordance to their weight/volume... so on and so forth.

    Just like what weighs more, a pound of bricks or a pound of feathers?

    The one shot from thegun u fa ggots. Even if the one dropped reaches the same speed as the one shot, the one shot already has a huge head start. Anybody who said the same time can now kill themselves and go to hell.

    the bullet shot from the gun will accelerate PAST terminal velocity and then EVENTUALLY slow down, but it will still hit the ground first becuase it started at a speed MUCH faster than gravity can ever do on it own. The other bullet that is dropped will jus fall as fast as gravity can allow. The "free fall" bullet will NEVER catch up to the "shot" bullet.

    No its not the same u idiot, a feather or a semi are not being propelled out of a barrel by an explosion lawlz u guys are so dumb.

    If you did grade 9 physics you should know this just saying
    Er, no.

    A bullet travels at like 900m/s, therefore if you were standing 900m above ground I'm pretty sure shooting the bullet would make it land first, compared to a bullet that is dropped and would therefore accelerate at 9.8m/s^2

    wait now, what the ****.

    if you're standing on top of a ladder and drop a bullet, and fire a bullet at the same time, the velocity of the fired bullet is going to make contact with the ground first, it's gotta

    read morons


    No matter what, the shot bullet will land first. Even if you shoot/drop from 3 miles above earth.

    Yes, eventually the shot bullet will slow to terminal volocity and travel at the same speed as the dropped bullet, but the shot bullet will have traveled much faster towards the ground until it reaches terminal volocity. by the time they are traveling at the same speed the bullets will have great distance between them.


    Yeah, pot doesn't harm you.

    Wouldn't the earth's curvature mean the shot bullet has slightly longer to fall?

    Actually, the feather and semi need to be in a vacuum to fall at the same speed, since only then would wind resistance be factored out.

    strong retards in this thread

    bullet shot at a short distance will obviously reach the ground faster than a dropped bullet

    but a bullet shot from a much farther distance (idk let's say from the sky) will drop the same as a dropped bullet from same position due to eventual reduction of speed

    I'm missing something here obviously...

    You shoot a bullet out of lets say out of a .50 cal.. which travels 2800 feet per second.
    You also release a .50 cal bullet as the same time and height w/the same angles.

    How the **** are they going to land at the same time? By the time they reach their max speed, in this case end speed for the .50 cal and the max speed of the released bullet they will be at different distances since the .50 produced a inital velocity where as the inital velocity of the released bullet is 0.



    It is a question of different inital velocities.
