Captain Planet foils Punders dastardly plan to turn the Earths forests into air conditioners by collecting all the glass domes and recycling them. The diameter of the Earth is 12756.2km, or 12756200m.
1264 pixels = 12756200m
1 pixel = 12756200m/1264 = 10091.9304m
10091.9304m X 220 = 2220224.69m
10091.9304m X 117 = 1180755.86m
12756200m/2 = 6378100m
A quick search reveals the average height of a man is 5 feet 9 inches, or 1.7526m.
1560 pixels = 1.7526m
1 pixel = 1.7526m/1560 = 0.00112346154m
0.00112346154m X 64 = 0.0719015386m
Volume as a demisphere.
V = 4/3πr^3
= 4/3 X π X 6378100^3
R = 6378100m - 0.0719015386m
V = 4/3πr^3
= 4/3 X π X 6378099.93^3
Weight of glass is 2579kg/m^3.
M = 5.4341619e20 X 2579
Captain Planet is carrying at least four domes when he zooms around the planet.
M = 1.40147035e24 X 4
Now, how about the timeframe? The circumference of the Earth is 40,075km.
T = 40,075km/0.5s
= 80150000/299792458 X 100
= 26.7351622% C
Enter that into the relativistic kinetic energy calculator and we get a result of 4.758E+39 joules, or 1.1371892925430210307 tenatons. Keep in mind he picks up even more of these domes when he zooms around the world.
Captain Planet flies around the planet with giant domes = 26.735% C
Captain Planet moves giant domes = >1.137 tenatons
