What's the upper range of reaction times for humans?
We had to do a reaction time test in Biology today in which you dropped a ruler from a point into someones open grasp for them to grab then measuring the length of the ruler where they grabbed it and converting that into a reaction time.
It gave a list of reaction times for every cm below the grabbing point(IE, you grab it at 20 your reaction time is .202 of a second).
If you grabbed it at 1cm(basicaly as soon as they dop it) it said that eqauled a reaction time of 0.0048 of a second.
As many people managed to acheive that(some more than once even) i contested that a reaction time of .0048 of a second is impossible and so anything less than a certain point would be an innaccurate result as the person grabbing would basicaly have guessed when it was going to be dropped taking reaction time out of the equation.
He said i was wrong, and that .0048 is possible by a human.
