Speed Booster

  • Samus Aran is 90 kilograms.
  • The Speed Booster allows Samus to run at supersonic speeds. The low-end is Mach 1.2.
  • At sea level, the speed of sound travels at 343 m/s.
  • 343 m/s * 1.2 = 411.6 m/s.
  • Using different formulae, we can learn how many joules Samus would produce, the TNT equivalent, the newtons, and the g-force.

Joules

  • The equation for kinetic energy is KE = 0.5 mv^2.
  • KE = 0.5 * (90 kg.)(411.6 m/s)^2
  • KE = 0.5 * (90 kg.)(169,414.56 m^2/s^2)
  • KE = 0.5 * 15,247,310.4 kg. m^2/s^2
  • KE = 7,623,655.2 J

TNT equivalent

  • 1 gram of TNT is equal to 4,184 J.
  • 1 ton of TNT is equal to 4,184,000,000 J.
  • Because the amount of joules produced from Samus when she dashes at supersonic speeds is smaller, she won't be producing the equivalent of even 1 ton of TNT.
  • If 1 gram of TNT is equal to 4,184 joules, then multiplying that by 1,000 will give us 1 kilogram of TNT, which is equal to 4,184,000 joules.
  • 7,623,655.2 joules is greater than 4,184,000 joules. Dividing them will give the amount of TNT.
  • 7,623,655.2 / 4,184,000 = 1.8 kilograms of TNT.

Newtons

  • The equation for newtons is N = kg. * m/s^2.
  • 1 N is 1 kg. * m/s^2
  • N = 90 kg. * 411.6 m/s^2
  • N = 37,044

G-Force

  • In both Metroid Fusion and Metroid: Zero Mission, it takes about 2 seconds for Samus to travel supersonic speeds. I will determine the g-force by means of acceleration.
  • a = v1 - v0 / t
  • a = 411.6 m/s - 0 m/s / 2 s
  • a = 411.6 m/s / 2 s
  • a = 205.8 m/s^2
  • Earth's gravity is 9.8 m/s^2
  • 205.8 m/s^2 / 9.8 m/s^2 = 21 g
