|STEEL (JOHN HENRY IRONS) |
In ‘Steel’ (1995) #21, titled “Stalker,” Steel performs a super strength feat. In Washington D.C., still must stop a terrorist attack masterminded by Metallo. During the battle, Steel knocks off Metallo’s head with his hammer.
How much super strength does it take for Steel to knock off Metallo’s head with a kinetic hammer?
STEEL HIT METALLO WITH ABOUT 311,834.090503 NEWTONS OF IMPACT FORCE IN AN ELASTIC COLLISION THAT REMOVED HIS 9.71 KILOGRAM HEAD FROM HIS BODY.
STEEL GENERATED 1559170.45252 JOULES OF KINETIC ENERGY WITH HIS KINETIC HAMMER, 20.8 PERCENT THE DAILY ENERGY EXPENDITURE OF A HUMAN BEING PER DAY.
SUPER STRENGTH FEAT:

Calculations for Steel, ‘Steel’ #21
Impact Force Of Steel = 441,000 N
Impact Force = Favgcos(pi/4) = 311834.090503 N.
W = Fimpact * d = kinetic energy = 1/2mv^2 = (311834.090503 N)(5 m) = 1559170.45252 J.
Energy Expenditure By A Human In A Day = 7,500,000 J/day.
Ratio = (1559170.45252 J * 100)/(7,500,000 J/day) = 20.8 %/day.
