The lads wanted me to make some calculations for our little cold-hearted princess. And when it comes to such a polite request, I couldn't simply Let It Go.

Calculation One: Elsa makes a big wall

Elsa creates a gigantic wall of ice. How stronk does this make her?

To spontaneously generate ice, I will assume that she's simply frozen the water in the air and run with that.

Frozen takes place in Norway, where our average temperature is a solid 15 degrees Celcius.

Using the image to the right:

Elsa = 7.81 pixels tall

According to this guy, Elsa is 63.889 inches, or 162.27806 cm tall

This means that there is 20.778 cm per pixel

The wave is 587 pixels (121.96 meters) tall and 688 pixels (142.95 meters) long

In this image, Elsa is 20 pixels tall

Therefore there is 8.1139 cm per pixel

The wave is 1415 pixels wide. This is 114.81 meters.

Doubling the length to make the base a kite gives the wave a base area of 16412.09 meters squared.

Multiplying that by the height and dividing by 3 gives a total pyramid volume of 2001618.4964 cubic meters

Dividing this by 2 cause we are only looking at half a pyramid and we have 1000809.2482 cubic meters

Ice is less dense than water (less volume of water would have been frozen to make more ice), so we will use the mass of ice and assume it to be the same as the mass of the water that was frozen

The density of ice is 917 kg/m^3

Mass of water frozen is 917742080.599 kg

Change in temperature equation is E = mcΔT

E = 917742080.599 x 4181 x 15

E = 5.7556195e+13 joules or 13.756 kilotons of TNT

Change of phase equation is E = ml

E = 917742080.599 x 334000

E = 3.0652585e+14 joules or 73.261 kilotons of TNT

13.756 + 73.261 = 87.017 kilotons of TNT | Town level+
