Magneto manipulates the world's metals (X-Men Apocalypse)
Finally watched this mediocre flick
time to calc the most impressive feat here
scene for refrence
Okay so, what magneto does as is explanied is extracting metals from earth and the surface and fucking shit up.
From the scene and how it's described he seem to be slowley moving stuff around, but the speed seems constant.
So to calc this I'll figure out the mass he's dealing with and the speed that he's moving it in
Speed can be calced from the scene, as for mass I couldn't find data on how much metal there's on the surface, I have found data on the metals in the crust though, and they seem to significantly outnumber those that humans have used so it shouldn't bring the result down that much.
The metals we care about are the ferromagnetic ones meaning iron, cobalt, nickel, gadolinum, terbium and dysprosium
from the chart we get:
Fe= 56,300 ppm
Co= 25 ppm
Ni= 84 ppm
Gd= 6.2 ppm
Tb= 1.2 ppm
Dy= 5.2 ppm
In total= 56421.6 ppm
ppm= parts per million, with 10,000 ppm = 1% of the weight of earth's crust
so 56,421.6 ppm = 5.64216% of earth's crust
The mass of earth's crust is 2.6x10^22 kg
So we are dealing with 1.4669616x10^21 kg of metal
Now for speed, lets look at how fast was the Sydney opera house breaking off
Building height = 225 px = 65 m
Base level = 45 px = (65/225)*45= 13m
Base level= 13m = 49 px
Total height= 325 px = 86.22 m
These two images show the difference that 5 seconds in video made
So it was moved 21.22 m in that time span
v=21.22/5= 4.244 m/s
Total kinetic energy of Magneto:
Ke= 0.5*m*v^2 = 0.5*(1.4669616e21)*(4.244)^2 = 1.32111158345088e22 J or 3.157 Teratons
Small country level
Apocalypse and Phoenix scale off this too
