Piplup creates a whirlpool

The Feat

This occurs in Season 10, episode DP39.

PiplupWhirlpool

In order to create a gap between a steamboat and a waterfall, Dawn’s Piplup creates a large whirlpool by throwing his own against the water.

Water Mass

SteamboatWhirlpool
  • Green Line = Whirlpool’s Radius = 1080 px = 475.667484793 meters

Using the semi sphere formula:

  • V = (4/3)*π*R^3
  • V = (4/3)*π*475.667484793^3
  • V = 450587127.76 m^3

Density of water is 1000 kg/m^3

  • M = Density * Volume
  • M = 1000 * 450587127.76
  • M = 450587127760 kg

KEr

I’ll use the Rotational Kinetic Energy Formula, so I need to find the rotation velocity.

  • ω = θ/t
  • ω = Revolutions/Minute

WhirpoolRing

WhirpoolsRings

According to Bulbapedia, DP series runs at 30 FPS and using Premiere, it took that amount of frames for another ring to appear in the whirlpool.

  • ω = 60/1 = 60 Rads per minute or 1 Rad/s

Rotational Kinetic Energy Formula:

  • KE = 0.5 I ω^2
    • I = Angular moment of inertia = 0.5 m r^2
* m = Mass 
* r = Radius
    • ω = Angular speed
    • I = 0.5*450587127760*475.667484793^2 = 225293563880*226259.556089 = 5.0974822e+16 kg m^2

KE = 0.5 I ω2 = 0.5*5.0974822e+16*1^2 = 2.5487411e+16 joules, 6.091637428298279 megatons or Small City Level+

So, either I’m doing something seriously wrong here or this is an Outlier. Both are very likely.

Mantyke carries a Boulder

The Feat

This occurs in Season 12, DP112

MantykeBoulder

I guess this time the name is self explanatory.

Mass

MantykeHeight
  • Green Line = Mantyke height = 526 px = 1 meter
  • Red Line = Mantyke’s back’s smile = 182 px = 0.34600760376 meters
MantykeBoulder
  • Red Line = Mantyke’s back’s smile = 64 px = 0.34600760376 meters
  • Pink Line = Boulder lower(1)/upper(2) length = 559 px = 3.0221601592 meters
  • Yellow Line = Boulder Height (1) = 671 px = 3.6276734648 meters
  • Blue Line = Boulder Height (2) = 112 px = 0.6055133056 meters
  • Purple Line = Boulder upper length (1) = 170 px = 0.919082696 meters
  • Orange Line = Boulder lower length (2) = 329 px = 1.7786953352 meters

Assuming the boulder is a truncated cone:

  • V1 = 12.11445385289 m^3
  • V2 = 2.8015314381489 m^3
  • V1 + V2 = 12.11445385289 + 2.8015314381489 = 14.915985291 m^3

Given that this boulder is later stated to be a meteor, which density rangse from 3000-3700 kg/m^3, I’ll use it’s average (3350 kg/m^3)

  • M = Density * Volume
  • M = 3350 * 14.915985291
  • M = 49968.5507248 kg

Dividing by 3 = 16656.1835749 kg or Class 25 for each Mantyke. Likely higher as there are chunks that aren’t covered and the Mantykes are doing this rather casually.

Gible lifts a Boulder

The Feat

This occurs in Season 12, episode DP145.

GibleLift

In order to show his endurance, Gible lifts a boulder using strength to let it fall and break over his head.

Mass

Advise: The image is edited in order to make it fit in the same picture

  • Blue Line = Boulder length = 1322 px = 5.78375 meters
  • Boulder Radius = 5.78375/2 = 2.891875 meters
  • Red Line = Boulder Width = 1055 px = 4.615625 meters

In order to find the volume, I’ll use an ellipsoid.

  • V = 4/3*π*a*b*c
  • V = 4/3*π*2.891875*4.615625*4.615625
  • V = 258.065031298 m^3

Density of rock is 2700 kg/m^3.

  • M = Density * Volume
  • M = 2700 * 258.065031298
