Introduction

Calcs requested by Prom. They're from numerous comics so I can't point to one particular piece of media.

Calc #1: Tahu Melts Sand

Tahu melts sand

Going to assume Tons here refers to mass and not amount.

Density of Sand is 1281 kg/m^3

Since it's a "few", I'll assume 3 Tons.

3 US Tons = 2721.55 kg

2721.55 / 1281 = 2.1 m^3 (Probs doesn't matter. Oh well)

Q = mc∆T

M = Mass

C = Specific Heat

∆T = Change in Temperature

Specific Heat of Sand is 710 J/kg°C (I can't find any source on J/kg°K, but according to this, they're the same?)

It seems to take place in a desert, so I'll assume 20°C (293.15°K) for initial temperature.

The temperature to turn Sand to Glass is 1760°C, or 2033.15°K

293.15 + 2033.15 = 2326.3°K

So:

2721.55 * 710 J/kg°K * 2326.3 = 4,495,110,653.15 J

1 Ton

Edit: This is not accurate. Ever linked a more accurate version.

Calc #2: Gali and Lewa's Storm

Bionicle Storm

Finding the height of the observer is basically impossible, so I'll use the average height of a Bioncle. According to Prom, they're "1.6 Bio", which is about 2.192 Meters [see comments].

That would give his a distance of 5.3 Kilometres.

Assuming that's the radius of the storm, since the scan shows the center of the storm (or what looks like the center), with one side stretching off into the horizon.

C = pi * r^2

pi * 5.3^2 = 88.2473376393 km^2

According to this article, a hurricane produces 6*10^14 Watts per 665 km^2.

88.2473376393 / 665 = 0.13270276336

6*10^14 * 0.13270276336 = 7.9621658e+13 W

19 Kilotons. Since it was a joint feat:

19 / 2 = 9.5 Kilotons

Calc #3: Gali "Resolves" A Wave

Bionicle Wave Calc Prom3131313131

Going to assume this means he's going to overpower the Kinetic Energy of the wave.

Using the previous estimation of 2.192 Meters

Gali = 23 Pixels = 2.192 Meters.

The waves height is 553 Pixels.

553 / 23 = 24

2.192 * 24 = 52.608 Meters

The thickness of the Wave is 8 Pixels.

23 / 8 = 2.875

2.192 / 2.875 = 0.7624347826 Meters

And the length is 271 Pixels.

271 / 23 = 11.78260869565217

2.192 * 11.78260869565217 = 25.8274782609 Meters

LWH

25.8274782609 * 0.7624347826 * 52.608 = 1035.944519 m^3

Density of Salt Water is 1027 kg/m3

Mass = Volume * Density

1035.944519 * 1027 = 1,063,915.02101 kg (Class K Lifting Strength)

Plugging these into the Tidal Wave Calculator:

Tidal Wave Speed2

So a speed of 22.71361361 m/s

Kinetic Energy

KE = M * 0.5 * V^2

1,063,915.02101 * 0.5 * 22.71361361^2 = 274,441,264.715 J

0.06 Tons.

Small Building level

Potential Energy

PE = MGH

M = 808,118.926276

G = 9.8

H = 48

1,063,915.02101 * 9.8 * 52.608 = 548,510,325.968 J

0.13 Tons

Building level

Calc #4: Onua Lifts a Boulder

Bioncile Lifting Feat

Once more, 2.192 Meters.

447 / 152 = 2.9

2.192 * 2.9 = 6.35 Meters

6.35 / 2 = 3.175

It's mostly spherical.

(4 × pi × 3.175^3)/3 = 134 m^3

Density of Granite is 2.75 g/cm^3, or 2750 kg/m^3

134 * 2750 = 368,500 kg. Class 100 Lifting Strength

PE = MGH

368,500 * 9.8 * 2.192 = 7,915,969.6 J.

7.9 Megajoules.

Room level.

Calc #5: Dude Melts That Boulder

Boulder melts

Q = mc∆T

M = Mass. Same as above

c = Specific Heat

∆T = Change in Temperature

Granite has a specific heat of Granite is 790 J/kg°K

Melting point of Granite is 1215°C, or 1761.3°K

IIRC, average Room Temperature is 14°C

14 + 1215 = 1229°C, or 1502.15°K

368,500 * 790 * 1502.15 = 437,298,397,250 J

104 Tons

Multi-City Block level
