## Piplup creates a whirlpool

### The Feat

This occurs in Season 10, episode DP39.

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

- Pink Line = Steamboat’s length = 169 px =
**74.433152713 meters**

- 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

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

I guess this time the name is self explanatory.

### Mass

- Green Line = Mantyke height = 526 px =
**1 meter**

- Red Line = Mantyke’s back’s smile = 182 px =
**0.34600760376 meters**

- 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.

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

### Mass

- Yellow Line = Gible = 160 px =
**0.7 meters**

- 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

- M =
**696775.584505 kg**or**Class K+**
