Calc Request Thread

Postby Asger » Sat Jul 20, 2013 3:01 pm

Alright this is just an idea I had, not sure if we already have anything like it, but I wanna go for it.

If you're like me, math and physics are as difficult as scaling Kilimanjaro while bollock naked and using nothing but your bare hands. So, if there's ever anything really difficult I ask for outside help before I make myself look like an idiot.

So, just post a scan or a video of something you want calculated, and then someone else can come along who actually knows how to properly quantify the feat. Sounds good, right?

About reasonable.

What does it take to bust a planet in terms of either physical prowess or Firepower, Supernatural or otherwise?
That one's a good start.

What do you mean by bust first, turn the whole planet into little more than atoms? Or blow it into large chunks?

Heres some info on planet destroying;

I've tried, and failed to calc this myself, I justcan't find the necessary information. However, I would appreciate it if someone calculated how powerful this bullet is.

Planet busting will depend on the size and mass of the planet. If gravitational binding energy of a planet is sufficient to destroy it (that's from many websites I've found about deathstar energy calcs, don't know if it's necessarily true), then destroying earth requires 2.24E+39 joules of energy to destroy (total destruction).
This comes from a calculation for the energy needed to destroy a solar system and i don't think the link works directly so it will be the first link in this google search (madsci.org):
Spoiler
https://www.google.com/search?q=energy+to+destroy+the+sun&oq=energy+to+destroy+the+sun&aqs=chrome.0.69i57j69i61j69i60j69i62l2.6106j0&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#sclient=psy-ab&q=energy+to+destroy+the+sun+madsci.org&oq=energy+to+destroy+the+sun+madsci.org&gs_l=serp.3...32433.34489.0.34541.13.12.1.0.0.0.170.1114.7j4.11.0....0...1c.1.23.psy-ab..9.4.442.Wg8VovkdeC0&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.49967636%2Cd.dmg%2Cpv.xjs.s.en_US.jOYpRJj4zMA.O&fp=5b683ef2ef985b22&biw=1280&bih=677


Okay I didn't expect the link to be that long so I spoilered it.
Using one gram of TNT to equal 4184 joules exactly (wiki TNT equivalent), then in bomb terms, what's needed to essentially vaporize earth is 5.3537285e+23 megatons of TNT or ~9.7 sextillion (21 zeros) Tsar Bombas, the strongest nuclear bomb ever detonated.

@ZomB
Don't exactly know how the bullet works, so I'll assume it's something like a heat seeking missile, except just a projectile.
Actually the more I think about it, the less calculable it is as it's very vague as to how it works, swerving and maneuvering, whether it pierces through shear speed or force...
I'd guesstimate that it has the same energy as 4-5 armor piercing rounds. Although it might be piercing those people more with heat than speed/force...

Just curious but how much force would it take to cause planets to shatter/start shattering while you are fighting in outer space in the general vicinity of those planets?

just as I said curious since there are planets shown cracking in the scan.

Also how much effort would it take to Bust a Mountain of made entirely out of Diamonds for that matter?

Questions like this are vague. The size of a mountain varies, much like a planet from the previous question.

What about if the Mountain was made entirely out of 745 Kg worth of Diamonds by chance?
That's the size!

That's mass, not size. That's also not a lot of diamond for a mountain. I don't have an answer for this, I was just explaining that vague questions aren't helpful.
