Part 1: Ultimate Guide To Debunking 911 Conspiracy Theories - Free Fall Speed
911 Truthers Lie When They Say The Towers Fell At "Free Fall Speed"
Many truthers are still insisting that 911 was an "inside job" and more specifically a controlled demolition. One of the founding claims they cite as evidence for 911 being an inside job is supposition that World Trade Center towers 1, 2, and 7 fell at free fall speed. This claim is grossly inaccurate as seen below in our video which includes timers.
Using the Kinematic Equation we can calculate the time it would take for something to free fall from the top of WTC1 and WTC2. For something to free fall from the top it would take approximately 9.22 seconds. Both towers took substantially longer than 9.22 seconds to completely collapse, thus debunking the common conspiracy claim that the towers fell near free fall speed, or anywhere near free fall speed for that matter.
But What About World Trade Center 7 Also Known Colloquially As Tower 7
WTC7, or Tower 7 didn't collapse in 6 or 6.5 seconds as documentaries like Loose Change have stated. The tower actually gives away structurally in its east penthouse first which can be seen in the upper left corner of the collapse. It total, it actually takes closer to a stagger 17 seconds to fully collapse. See the full collapse video below, and pay special attention to the upper left corner of the building.
There is absolutely no validity in the statements made by truthers that the towers fell anywhere near free fall speed. That said, the collapse rates do definitely fall in line with the expected collapse rates backed by math and science. For a full detailed paper on the subject please visit the link below.
