How Gwen Stacy Died (Physics Version)


Recommended Posts

In the new Amazing Spiderman film they implemented an iconic plot point from the comics. (spoiler alert) Gwen Stacy dies. After I was emotionally drained from watching it I sat down and did the math of how it happened.

    Lets say that Goblin dropped her rom a height of 50 meters.

   She began falling from rest at an acceleration of 9.81m/s^2.

   She reached terminal velocity about half way down and had a final velocity of about 55m/s

So, when the web hit her she was traveling roughly 55m/s and the hard stop was too much fore her neck to bear and snapped it. That....is how she died.
