Stapp discovered that the product pretty well determines the damage to a bag of giblets in jelly
100 stapp of deceleration, however delivered, tends to separate the entrails though it is survivable if you are sitting backwards.
Do you really think that the effect on the rider's body of stopping a sledge from 100 m/s in 1 second is the same as doing it in 100 seconds?
But the tortoise still gets something like 1000 G.
(2 mph seems to be the horizontal limit, not determined entirely by air drag)
Did you really calculate the terminal speed of a tortoise in air? What value did you get?
I would not expect the tortoise to suffer more than 50 g it depends on the hardness of its shell and that of the rock.
