  1. That depends upon how long it takes your body to decelerate, and that will depend upon: (1) what part of your body you land on and (2) whether you can bend one or more joints to "cushion" the fall. A maximum-force scenario would be to land on a skull, hip or straight "locked" arm or leg.

    The width of any fat and muscle layer between the floor and impacted bone will also make a difference.
