Would you be able to translate this? This databook relates to the anime so I think it's acceptable to use of that profile only. While there is the actual translated version, the translated version has been a good source of controversy, so it's better if we can just translate it raw.
Hey Qawsed, I think I've identified a problem with the calc whose volume and width you used to get the currently accepted ends for Gouketsu's shockwave calc. The 22322 (256 px) meter diameter that calc used to find the original results is only the very middle-section of the deformed cloud, the surrounding rings are not considered even though they were broken up by the shockwave. From what I can see, the total deformed area is more like 90,000 (1000 px~) meters in width, especially because the leftmost rings go off panel.
Is the discrepancy in volume and diameter legit? From what I can see, this point has never been raised before. I think the cloud split should be recalced with the adjusted diameter that includes all the rings that were created by the shockwave. Maybe we should have some function that works like hollowness because the remaining rings of cloud could have potentially been more or less "passed" over by the shockwave.
Leading off the recent Jet Drive Arrow calc, I am revisiting several dragon level calculations. First, I would like to approach Beefcake’s equation by revisiting his height. The groundwork is already laid here- we have the panel with pixels counted and a low-end of pulverization and a high-end of vaporization. The only question remaining is… how big is Beefcake really?
While the OPM data book gives a straight answer and says Beefcake is 270 meters, Beefcake’s height in the manga, anime and webcomic never approaches that figure. Instead, Beefcake normally appears to be several km tall. But on Matthew Schroeder’s suggestion, I will recalc Beefcake’s height as it appears on the page where the feat is shown.
Since the buildings in the topmost panel are not detailed enough to accurately gauge their height, I will scale Beefcake’s wrist to the bit of collapsing building in the bottom left panel.
Building = 68 pixels/ 4 stories = 17 pixels per story, story = 4.3 m, (0.253m per pixel)
Wrist in lower panel = 275 pixels, 69.5m
Okay, now let’s take that height into the topmost panel. These pixels for Beefcake’s height and the crater width+ depth have already been measured, but I will measure them myself just to be sure and scale them to the wrist.
Wrist in upper panel = 24 pixels, 69.5m (2.895m per pixel)
Height= 350 pixels, 1013.3 m
Crater width= 389 pixels, 1126.2m
Crater height= 275 pixels, 796.1m
And to double check the height, I’m going to scale two buildings in the left side of the top panel (since these are relatively clear of the blast and surrounded by many other buildings), a short one and a tall one. If they have normal building heights, this should indicate we're relatively close to the mark.
Short building= 2 pixels, 5.8m
Tall building= 9 pixels, 26.1m
The short building is between one and two stories tall, and the tall building is about 6 stories tall. Looks good, now we will move forward with the given crater depth and width.
I will use the ellipsoid formula and divide by half to account better for the dimensions of the crater’s odd cylindrical shape. The sides are steep but seem to quickly curve into a flattish surface which is lost to light, so a cone formula would miss much of the hole volume. Given the unclear shading, the crater may also go deeper than we can see.
4/3πabc=(4/3 x π x 56310 x 56310 x 79610)/2 ≈5.28685×10e14cc
LE (pulverization)= 2.64343x10e14 x 214.35 = 1.1332363×10e17 joules or 27 megatons, 7-B
HE (vaporization)= 2.64343x10e14 x 27500 = 1.45388375×10e19 joules or 1623 megatons, High 7-A
