We professional chimps have performed research in this area at MIT (Monkey Institute of Technology).

Find an elevation of 300 meters. From that apex, throw the following:

A mouse, a rat, a human (95Kg) , a zebra, and an elephant.

If the mouse lives, the rat dies, the human breaks, the zebra splatters, and the elephant explodes, then derive the following equation from the breakage and splatter analysis.

$$\ V(x)=\dfrac{W}{m}\ = \dfrac{1}{m}\int \limits_{\infty}^{x}\ F\ dx =\dfrac{1}{m}\int \limits_{\infty}^{x}\dfrac{GmM}{x^2}dx=-\dfrac{GM}{x}$$

 

 In human words this equals SPLAT!

We always monkey around until we find the answer!

A site that has the equation for this as well as a calculator is:
