every minute.

Blastoise emits water from to cannons mounted on its back.

Olympic pool dimensions: 50mx25mx2.0m
Volume=2500m3

Q=vaveA
Cannon diameter: 0.1m
A=π0.05m2x2=0.0157m2
Q-2500m3/60sec=41.7m3/sec
41.7m3/sec=vave(0.0157m2)
vave=2700m/sec

Hydro pump fires approximately 1 liter (0.001m3) of water at the opponent.
m=ρ/V
m=1000kg/m3/0.001m3
m=1kg

v=680m/sec
m=39.5kg

KE=.5mv2
KE=.5(1kg)(2700m/sec)2
KE=3.65x106J

p=mv
p=(1kg)(2700m/sec)
p=2.70x103W

Pidgeot:
Height: 4’11”
Weight: 87 lbs

Pokédex: Pidgeot can fly two times faster than the speed of sound

v=680m/sec
m=39.5kg

KE=.5mv2
KE=.5(39.5kg)(680m/sec)2

p=mv
p=(39.5kg)(680m/sec)
p=2.69x104W

Machamp:
Height: 5’3”
Weight: 287 lbs

Pokédex: Machamp can punch Pokémon to the moon.

ve=escape velocity (velocity necessary to break a planet’s gravitational pull)

ve2=2GM/r

G=universal gravitational constant=6.67×10−11 m3/kg s
M=mass of planet
Mearth=5.98x1024kg
rearth=6.38x103km

ve2=(2)(6.67×10−11 m3/kg s)(5.98x1024kg)/(6.38x103km)
ve=350,000m/sec

mhuman fist=0.7kg
mhuman=70.0kg
A fists’s mass is approximately 1 percent of organism’s mass
mmachamp=130kg
mmachamp fist=1.30kg

v=350,000m/sec
m=1.30kg

KE=.5mv2
KE=.5(1.30kg)( 350,000m/sec)2
KE=7.96x1010J

p=mv
p=(1.30kg)( 350,000m/sec)
p=4.55x105W

Dragonite:
Height: 7’3”
Weight: 463 lbs

Pokédex: Dragonite can circle globe in 16 hours

rearth=6.38x103km
C=2πr
Cearth=2π(6.38x103km)
Cearth=4.00x107km

∆x=vt
4.00x107km=v(57,600 sec)
v=2400m/sec
mdragonite=210kg

KE=.5mv2
KE=(.5)(210kg)(2400m/sec)2
KE=6.05x108J

p=mv
p=(210kg)(2400m/sec)
p=5.00x105W

Diglett:
Height: 0’8”
Weight: 2 lbs

Pokédex: Diglet can pull itself underground at the speed of light.

v=3.0x108m/sec
m=0.91kg

KE=.5mv2
KE=.5(0.91kg)(3.0x108m/sec)2
KE=4.12x1016J

p=mv
p=(0.91kg)(3.0x108m/sec)
p=2.73x108W
