How much super strength does it take for Hercules to pull Manhattan Island back into New York Bay?

IN THE ISSUE, HERCULES DRAGGED THE 125,208,467,000 KILOGRAM MANHATTAN ISLAND INTO NEW YORK BAY.

IMPORTANTLY, THE TENSION IN THE CHAIN GENERATED 8.7231849*1015 JOULES OF WORK. ENOUGH TO DESTROY A SMALL CITY.

In order to save New York, Hercules pulls Manhattan Island back into New York Bay.

We will calculate the tension in Hercules’ chains in order to find the super strength.

NUMBER CRUNCHING


Since Hercules pulled Manhattan Island using a chain, we have to calculate the tension he generated. We also know that the tension is equal to the force necessary to accelerate Manhattan Island. We will assume the acceleration equals 1 m/s2.

T = F = macos60° = (125,208,467,000 kg)(1 m/s2)/cos60° = -131464469274 N.
Friction = F = μN = (0.7)( (125,208,467,000 kg)(9.81 m/s2) = 859806542889 N.
W = Ftotald = |(-131464469274 N – 859806542889 N)|(8800 m) = 8.7231849e+15 J.

SUPER STRENGTH

First, Hercules dragged Manhattan Island into New York Bay. Hence, Hercules pulled 125,208,467,000 kg Manhattan Island.

To this end, Hercules generated 8.7231849e+15 J of work. In order to drag Manhattan Island, Hercules had to generate a Multi-Continent Level of Super Strength.
