Now this is for a video on my channel, I'll get that out of the way now. I love gaming, science, and physics. I recently started to try and figure out how strong the doomfist (Overwatch) would have to be to level a skyscraper.
I got this idea from this video here: https://youtu.be/FqnKB22pOC0
I spent a lot of time going over frame by frame on certain parts of this and doing a some research on the Internet, this is some of what I found:
The doomfist is a gauntlet about 2-3 average male fists wide. It appears to be operated with some sort of batteries on both sides (Hence the fact that on impact the type of blast wave appears to be electrical, and why it sparks after being used. The user, the scourge, most likely was trained by an organization known as Tallon, meaning he has training in fighting. I compared his punch to be compared to the boxer British boxer Ricky "The Hitman" Hatton (ex-welterweight champ), who had an average punching speed of 11 mps (25 mph).
The Term skyscraper is any building 50 meters(164 feet) and above.
Most Skyscrapers have a framework made of steel or reinforced concrete with a curtain wall made of glass or polished stone.
I clearly saw some type of blast-wave come from the impact hitting widowmaker. (I have ruled out explosion, EMP, and I'm doubting shockwave.) The wave looks noticeably electrical, and after impact when the glove breaks you can clearly see electricity spark from the glove with the same hue as the wave.
Newton's third law does take effect, launching both of the back. Though you can see the boy gets launched back less by the recoil.
Arm length would depend on his height, but if we look at the scourge on the map numbani, we may get some idea of arm length. This would give us the variable distance, allowing us to plug that into our equation.
I am having trouble figuring out the actual area covered by the gauntlet in a fist. If we can find the length, from pinky knuckle to index knuckle, of an average male hand we can figure out what Length it is, but not width. Also since we are looking for how long the scourge's arm is, we find that, we get our height as well.
I decided to also try and use real world materials to try and figure out the mass. I figure to absorb some of the impact it would need some sort of vibration dampener, so I chose a martial known as sorbothane. Then considering that the glove is likely electrically charged with some sort of highly strong metal on the outside, it would need a protecting layer of something, so I guessed the black under the metal was rubber. The metal and battery are the parts giving me a problem.
D/T=S (Distance/Time=Speed) from the kid punching to the time of impact it takes about 0.4 seconds reach her, and I'm going to estimate the kids arm from shoulder to wrist to be about 2.5 ft-3 ft. now if we plug it in: 2.5/0.4=6.25 or 3/0.4=7.5 now this is far from 100% accurate, but it is the closest we are going to get without precise image showing how close they are.
We are going to use this < to show the change in and the amount in the next equation
