Physics Question: What Would Happen if Superman Punched You?


(Video Link)

If Superman didn't pull his punch and hit you at full force, what would you experience? I mean besides a bad day.  Well, Jake Roper says that you'd feel 190,000,000,000,000,000 joules impact your body. That would be like 2,800 times the power of the atomic bomb that destroyed Hiroshima.

Obviously such a punch would negatively impair your lifestyle. The temperature of such an impact would reach 143,999,999,999.540.3 °F. Roper says, "You'd be liquefied at the atomic level."

So don't tug on his cape.

If you want a good laugh, read SF author Larry Niven's essay "Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex." It's about Superman's love life. --Vikya

I think, for the sake of the comics, we can assume that Superman never punches full force. He has the power to regulate the punch as to achieve his goal at hand. So to speak.
