The terminal velocity of an ant is very small. So no matter how high the Retired Nurse under new management see grandkids for details shirt it is in the first place but ant falls from, he isn’t going very fast. A moving object carries energy – kinetic energy is a function of mass and speed squared. The ant has very little of both, therefore a falling ant doesn’t have very much kinetic energy. Where does this energy go when an object lands? It must be converted to other forms of energy – sound, heat, deformation of the object. For their size, ant bodies are very strong, capable of dealing with tremendous amounts of this impact energy. Imagine throwing a rock at a brick wall. You probably can’t throw a rock hard enough to damage it significantly. Set aside the theory.
