If I drop a glass from 3 meters high, it shatters when it hits the floor. Worse still, my beer splashes all over the place.

Yet, it drops first half that distance, then half that distance, then half that distance, ad infinitum. So it never actually hits the floor and shatters.

I know there's a mathematical explanation of why it does actually hit the floor (and prove reality), could someone please walk me through the explanation?

Cheers!
