Water Balloon



Over the summer, I had people over to my house for a pool party. After making about 4 dozen water balloon, we thought it would be a smart idea to remove the screen from my window and drop the water balloons over people below... expecting them to break. Although, because we only did this out of a first story window, the balloons were not given enough time to build up enough velocity to force them to explode when coming in contact with another surface/object. If the balloons were dropped from a second story window they would've been more likely to pop and drench the people below us because, with acceleration, the more time something has to drop, the more velocity it will build as its dropping.
