The Scene Mary Jane climbs down from Spider- Man along the cable to the cable car The Green Goblin attacks Spider-Man, causing him to drop the cable When Spider-Man grabs the cable again, Mary Jane falls and then grabs onto the edge of the cars roof.

The Physics It would be impossible for her to hold on to the car after falling from such a distance.

Calculations: Falling Distance Estimated cable car height 3.15 m On screen car height = 0.0102 m Fall distance on screen = 0.0450 m } 3.15 m

MaryJane 13.91 m 3.15m / 0.0102m = X / 0.0450m X = 13.91m falling distance 45.59ft. About 3-4 stories Calculations: Falling Distance

Calculations: Impact Force Kirsten Dunsts est. weight = 120 lbs. 54.48 kg F=ma=(54.48kg)(9.81m/s 2 ) = 534.45 N 120 lbs. force

Impact Force Average female hands can handle about 92 lbs. of force It takes nine or 10 pounds of force to dislocate a shoulder

Calculations: Terminal Velocity Estimated time of fall (8.65s)/2 + 1.56s = 5.885 s Free-Fall v f =a t=9.81m/s 2 (5.885s)= 129 mph Sky-diving without a parachute (slow motion)/2 = real time 57.73 m/s

___Conclusion Its impossible for Mary Jane to hold on to the roof of the cable car after falling from such a distance. If she could she would at least sustain serious personal injuries.
