A2_4 Murderous leaf

Trisha Bhaad, Elliott Dickens, Sandip Limbu, Dominic Anderson


Can a regular leaf prove to be fatal for a human being if Earth were to switch its wind speed with the planet Uranus? In this paper fundamental physics is applied, and the time taken for a leaf to pierce through the skin to reach the bones is calculated to be 0.29 s if it travels a distance of 11.6 m. The air resistance faced by the leaf is 0.162 N which is expected to be a small value sinceit is proportional to the area of the object.
