Its understandable. You want to know how long you would have to think after being committed.

How did doing the calculation make you feel?

That's how long the fall would be. Is it strange that I calculated my own death?
39.9 metres or 131.14 feet

I say you started the calculations with 40 metres but you did not take into account air resistance. I think it would be closer to 3 seconds if you take air resistance into account.
