TOTAL


DARKSEID’S NEGATIVE DAMAGE:

Toggle the Toggle Arrow below to view the calculations.

-28 DAMAGE PTS.

Gravitational Pull Of Sun On Earth = 3.52*10^22 N.
Distance From Earth To Sun = 149.6*10^9 m.
Kinetic Energy Of Universe Expansion = (0.5 * 1.5×10^53 kg)(73300^2 m/s) = 4.0296675*10^62 J.

-(28 DAMAGE PTS * ((149.6*10^9 m * 3.52*10^22 N) + (4.0296675*10^62 J)) * 1 Ton of TNT)/(4.2*10^9 J) = -79.5944464*10^52 PTS * Ton of TNT.


Durability = We therefore can calculate that the total energy the sun has to burn is around 1.3 x 10^44 Joules. Dividing 3.8 x 10^26 Watts (the rate at which the sun is giving off energy) into this number gives an approximate value of 10 billion years for the sun’s lifetime.
