Akira has been pretty sh**** with this for awhile.

For example, while fighting kid buu, who is literally 4 times or more powerful than Vegeta, Vegeta is able to distract him. Sure Vegeta couldn't do anything, but any of Buu's blasts or striking combos should have downed Vegeta quite easily.

This would be like Master Roshi taking a punch from Raditz.

as you wish

it is silly thing to even discuss

You sound salty man.

If an person fell from a building at 10 mph and 100 mph, the force that they will experience when they hit the ground is literally almost 100 times more. Force has more of a linear relationship when it comes to breaking things, for example a tensile test.

If you tied a rope to a object with the rope's durability rating of F for break force, and if they fall at 10 times the speed, the rope will receive 100 * F, 100 times greater than the ropes durability rating. The rope would literally have to be 100 times stronger to stop the object.

durability =\= energy

If you're going to just type 2 words as responses, then I'd rather not discuss it at all with you.

@DammeFavour: @slimj87d: No, the durability remains the same, it is the energy OUTPUT which increases 100x.

Where is all that energy going to go? When you slam your foot on the ground, the ground will not move, it will send the majority of the force to your leg as you stomp it. Maybe 100 times more durable is an exaggeration, other factors such as shock absorption, etc would be into play, but this measurement is usually studied from impact testing, the coefficient of restitution. But my point is that you can't just be 10 times more durable to withstand impacts at 10 times the extra speed.

@slimj87d: I don't think speed nd durability correlate in comic book science. Most speedsters get their energy externally nd have some sort of protective aura for the effect of high velocity travel. Which is why no matter how angry hulk gets he will never catch qs

I actually wasn't talking about comic books but rather in real life, like if we started to genetically enhance ourselves, these are the things scientist will have to take into consideration.

Hello Comic Vine,

I apologize for my absence, but life has gotten pretty busy for me. I don't get to post here anymore. I truly do miss you guys.

TL;DR As an estimate, you would have to be around 100 times more durable to run 10 times more faster.

PREPARE YOURSELF FOR SOME TEXT THAT MAY BORE YOU!

While out exercising, and thinking about some of my favorite comic book heroes, I asked myself a question. How does running 10 times faster affect someones body? What kinds of things would happen to someones body?

To answer this question, we'll have to use one of Newton's energy equations. In terms of speed, Kinetic Energy = 1/2 * Mass * V^2

When someone says that a car traveling at 120 MPH will have double the impact as a car traveling at 60 MPH, they are wrong. The answer is actually four times more impact energy! In the kinetic energy equation, you can see that velocity squared is exponential. Therefore, if 60 MPH = V, and 120 MPH = 2* V, then 2 * V^2 = 4 * V.

That means if someone ran at 10 times the speed that they normally do, their body would have to withstand literally 100 times the impact! What does that mean? I estimate that you would literally need 100 times the durability just to run 10 times faster. Therefore, your bones and muscles would be experiencing 100 times the impact it normally does and would have to be 100 times more stronger in durability.

I don't know the relationship strength has with durability and speed since I never studied biomechanics. But it would definitely be interesting to me to see how strong someone would have to be to literally run 10 times faster.

@slimj87d: his form broke that much because rage boosts are unpredictable

Seriously, gohan for example literally got 1000x stronger back in the saiyan saga from just a rage boost

Yeah, that's fine. But it didn't make him 1000x stronger throughout the series. It was actually tossed aside and forgotten just like Vegeta's Super Saiyan 2 form becoming stronger than Goku in SS3, it was only a temporarily boost that vanished and disappeared in Tori's farts.

Honestly, I'm sick and tired of Vegeta being pure fodder. Specially what happened in the most recent episode. It's like he only has two uses.

1. Lose to a villain to show how seriously dangerous the villain is.

2. Give Goku time to study the villain.

Kinda sad for Vegeta.

@mike_fowler: SS3 >> Ss2

I know that sounds like silly reasoning but the power leveling multiplier from SS3 is far greater than SS2's multiplier.

I don't remember the multiplier, but I think it was like SS3 multiples base by 75 and SS2's was like 50.

I don't know how Vegeta's Ss2 form break the multiplier that much.

EDIT: I don't know how true this is, it's supposed to come from the super exvitinf DragonBall guide

Super Saiyan - 50x the Saiyan's normal battle power. This is the old standard which was crafted from the events of the battle with Freeza and has been repeated in a whole bunch of things since then.

Super Saiyan 2 - 2x the "strength" of Super Saiyan, or 100x normal power.

Super Saiyan 3 - 4x the "strength" of Super Saiyan 2, or a whopping 400x normal power

To me, it meant nothing, a one time power up he had because of plot.

In no way did it make sense with the DBZ mechanics.

Hopefully the Blu-ray has some commentary about Bucky testing all the soldiers. I don't know if bucky was just fatigued from fighting them all or not, or if he had to HD back to just test them, but when he left he smacked one of the soldiers in the face and one shotted him with his mechanical arm.
