Introduction

Bit feat for inFAMOUS 1, where Cole tanks the point-blank explosion of a gas tanker. I will be calculating this using the method here.

Calculation

From Wikipedia: "Large trucks typically have capacities ranging from 5,500 (Low-End) to 11,600 (High-End) US gallons"

Average gallons = 8550 gallons (Mid-End)

4–5×104 J Energy released by the combustion of 1 gram of gasoline

Gasoline has a density of 6.073 lb/US gal.

Low-End:

5500 gallons = 33401.5 pounds = 15150665.55 grams

15150665.55 * 4e+4 = 606026622000 joules or 144.84 Tons of TNT

Mid-End:

8550 gallons = 51924.15 pounds = 23552398.2587 grams

23552398.2587 * 4e+4 = 9.4e11 joules or 224.66 Tons of TNT

High-End:

11600 gallons = 70446.8 pounds = 31954130.97 grams

31954130.97 * 4e+4 = 1.2781652e+12 joules or 305.48 Tons of TNT

Conclusion

  • Low-End: 144.84 Tons of TNT (Multi-City Block level)
  • Mid-End: 224.66 Tons of TNT (Multi-City Block level)
  • High-End: 305.48 Tons of TNT (Multi-City Block level)
