At what height does jumping into water feel like concrete?

At 50 feet it feels like you're hitting concrete. At 100 feet, you're dead. At 150 feet you didn't even exist, that's how much it ****s you up.

Furthermore, can you survive a 500 foot fall into water?

A man survived a 500-foot fall from a New York City skyscraper. When the 35W bridge collapsed in Minneapolis, 13 people died, but many more survived the more than 100-foot fall. Even 2 percent of those who jump off the Golden Gate Bridge live.

Secondly, can you survive a 1000 foot fall into water?

If you can dive into water, it won't feel good at 125mph, but you'll survive if the water is deep enough -- at least 12 feet or so. Steer toward the water (it's helpful if you've been skydiving before and know how to steer as you are falling), and dive right in.

What happens if you jump into water from a great height?

For example, the difference between water and ice is that the random kinetic energy of water, better known as “heat”, is greater than the binding energy between the molecules in ice. So, when you fall from a great height and land in water there's a bunch of kinetic energy going every which way.

Why do you die when you hit water?

Hitting water quickly results in a very large drag force. Large forces can break bones and damage internal organs. That's what kills you. It is important to understand that water is actually a rather hard substance and that when you enter water, you are having to break the surface tension of the water.
