FREE FALL CALCULATOR


Free fall calculator calculates the initial position, final position, initial velocity, final velocity, maximum height, and time parameters of free fall in physics without air resistance. Moreover, following plots are drawn for the free falling object.

  - Height (or Vertical Position) vs. Time

  - Velocity vs. Time

The free fall formulas used for calculations are given in the "List of Equations" section.
