Almost two months ago, I dropped my phone outside by the football field. I usually just pick it up and go about my day, but this time was different- a portion of my screen actually shattered. I've had my phone for almost two years now, and have dropped it more times than I can count. But of course, I was having the worst day and my phone free fell into a shattered and broken mess. It fell out of my pocket with an initial velocity of zero, and an acceleration of 9.81 meters per second squared. When it hit the ground, it had a higher velocity, meaning that it hit the ground with more force. It was quite a sad day, but it could have been worse.
