Calculations for the Block Story verse.


Every single block in BS world have volume of 1 m^3. The tightest block in the BS is the golden block. The density of gold is 19.32 ton/m^3.

TNT Equivalent

Let's see how powerful the TNT block in the BS explodes. Explosion does not affect creatures and blocks located more than 4.5 blocks from the epicenter. Therefore, radius is 4.5 meters. But explosion is not spherical, it is due to the peculiarity of the BS world - it is cubic. The explosion is more like two tetrahedral pyramids superimposed on each other by bases. I built a building of golden blocks, in order for the explosion to hit it as much as possible:

B S 1920x1080 2018-01-08 14-13-50

Now that you know how explosions work in the BS, let's calculate the amount of construction.

1 + 5 + 13 + 25 + 41 + 25 + 13 + 5 + 1 = 129 m^3

I put the TNT block in the center of the construction and activated it. That's what happened to the construction after the explosion:

B S 1920x1080 2018-01-08 14-17-13

I dug up the remaining blocks and looked at their number:

BS Golden Blocks

Among 129 blocks, 61 left. Let's repeat this:

B S 1920x1080 2018-01-08 14-40-16
BS Golden Blocks2

Now left only 60 blocks. It can be concluded that the explosion is effective at around 47%.

EDIT: When i writed this blog, i forget about vaporization.

There also exists iron blocks in Block Story. Assuming the TNT explosion would destroy the same amount of cubic meters of iron as it does gold:

Iron has a density of 7.87 grams per cm^3.

60.63 M^3 = 60630000 cm^3

60630000 x 7.87 = 477158100 grams, or 477158.1 kilograms.

Latent heat(Vaporization) value of iron is 6213627 joules/kg

6213627 x 477158.1 = 2964882450000 joules, or 708.6239125239006 Tons of TNT
