Well, assuming that the length of one Minecraft block is 1 meter (I think this might actually be confirmed, not 100% though), then the mass of one block of gold would be 19282 kg. One gold 'Notch' apple in Minecraft is made using 8 gold blocks; that means one golden apple would have a mass of 154256 kg. Steve can hold 64 golden apples in any inventory slot, meaning a full stack of golden apples would weigh 9872384 kg. There are 36 total inventory slots, bringing the total mass Steve can carry in his inventory to 355405824 kg. Steve can also wear armour made out of gold, which needs 24 ingots of gold to make. Given that a block of gold is made out of 9 ingots, simple math will tell us that a full set of armour would have a mass of 1208 kg. Adding this on to the maximum inventory mass, we get 355407032 kg. Now we must take into account the fact that, while carrying all this mass, Steve shows no signs of being over encumbered. He is running and jumping around just as easily as if he was carrying nothing at all. The average human becomes over encumbered when carrying 20% of their on body weight, which means Steve himself must have a mass of at least 1777035160 kg.

Again, presuming 1 block in Minecraft is 1 meter, Steve sprints at around 5.621 m/s. A 'potion of swiftness II' increases the maximum sprinting speed by 40%, bringing Steve's velocity up to 14.0525 m/s.

Therefore, Steve's acceleration can be calculated using v = u + at (assuming Steve starts from rest, and travel 14.0525 meters in 1 second)

14.0525 = 0 + a*1

a = 14.0525 m/s^2

Now, we can finally calculate how much force Steve is capable of exerting.

F = m*a

F = 1777035160 kg * 14.0525 m/s^2

F = 24971786585.9 N

That means if Steve were to just run straight into his opponent while using a swiftness II potion, he would hit them with a force of 24971786585.9 N. That's around 2.5 megatons (2.5464135574302786 to be exact). To put that into perspective, the nuke that was dropped on Nagasaki was only around 20 *kilotons. *

**Steve running into someone would produce an explosive force that's 125x stronger than a nuclear bomb.**
