You looked up how to do the math. What you aren't taking into account is the SIZE of the explosion.
According to your math, being blasted by a C4 charge would only be 392kg of force.
That's obviously incorrect since a C4 charge would blast you into multiple pieces, but a 392kg guy standing on you would only hurt.
User avatar #1152735 - TheMather (05/18/2015) [-]
Wow, that is so horribly incorrect it's not even funny.
No, I didn't have to look up how to do the math. I'm doing space science, this shit is the fundamentals.

C4 would hit you with a shockwave of 13,600 kg. The 392 kg guy standing on you is accurate. For the record, this would destroy your insides and possibly crush your bones.

The size of an explosion determines the energy of the shockwave, not the force. If an explosive is unable to do any damage at all, using more of it doesn't work. However if it does do damage, then using more increases it.
User avatar #1152719 - zionsype (05/18/2015) [-]
Just because you looked up some quick facts doesn't mean anything.
If the explosion was so weak, why would Accelerator even bother causing it?
And why would such a weak explosion make him reconsider whether he could survive a nuke?
The explosion was apparently so strong it surprised ACCELERATOR, and that's obviously saying something.
User avatar #1152720 - TheMather (05/18/2015) [-]
I didn't look up some facts, I did the math.
And the explosion made Accelerator reconsider the possibility of him surviving a nuke because it used up a lot of the oxygen in the area. He noticed it was harder to breathe after the explosion so he realized that standing in the middle of a nuclear detonation would asphyxiate him.

"It shows him running away, cuts to a shot of the explosion happening, and then cuts to the aftermath."
And since he isn't the flash, he was in the center of it.
They fucked up, Touma should've died if what happened in Railgun actually happened.
In index the explosion is much smaller, and I'm pretty sure Accelerator says something about reversing it
User avatar #1152701 - zionsype (05/18/2015) [-]
"For a shockwave, that really isn't that fast."
The speed and force of things doesn't change because of what's causing them. Getting hit by a shockwave going 200m/s is the same as getting hit by a car going 200m/s
Also, in Railgun I'm pretty sure he just took the full impact. It was index that he hid behind a corner if I remember correctly.
Also, you said C4 is around 8000, and Dust Explosions are around 2000... that isn't that far off. And if you put 2 C4 next to each other, the explosion is bigger, and the bigger the explosion, the more force, and that was a HUGE fucking explosion.
Touma should've died if it really did happen the way Railgun showed it, end of story.
User avatar #1152718 - TheMather (05/18/2015) [-]
A better way to put it is that it's 3,800 kg/m^2, or 0.38 kg/cm^2. Which is the same amount of pressure as applied by a person weighing 98kg standing on you. Something which for a person of Touma's athleticism would be only mildly uncomfortable.
User avatar #1152712 - TheMather (05/18/2015) [-]
No, because air weighs next to nothing. Assuming you take it head on, you're hit by a surface area of ~1m^2. With the air going 2,000 m/s that's 2,000m^3 or 2,000,000 l of air per second. Since air has a mass density of 1.19g/l, that's 3,800 kg of force. Roughly the same amount of force as an average car going 2m/s, which is the speed of a slow walk.
And this is assuming you're standing in a wind tunnel that's blocked in the other end with the explosion happening literally in your face.

And Railgun doesn't show Touma being hit by the explosion at all. It shows him running away, cuts to a shot of the explosion happening, and then cuts to the aftermath.
User avatar #1152684 - zionsype (05/18/2015) [-]
"Whereas dust explosions can only reach up to 2,000 m/s" ...you realize how absurdly fucking fast that is? The speed of sound is 340.29m/s.
Even 1/10 of that will guarantee death.
User avatar #1152696 - TheMather (05/18/2015) [-]
For a shockwave, that really isn't that fast. Keep in mind what is hitting you is literally just a bunch of sound at once. A shockwave literally cannot exist that is slower than the speed of sound.
1/10th of 2,000 m/s would just be experienced as a change in air pressure, it'd pose less danger than sound.

Now Touma was even clever enough to run around a corner. And since shockwaves dissipate very quickly, what he was hit by was just wind, and furthermore that hit him in the back, away from any squishy bits. It'd be nearly impossible to get any injury from that unless it makes you fall over and hit your face on the ground.

...What's your point?
Explosions have force, one that big, even if it's fire quickly goes out, would undoubtedly kill a human.
It's not the fire that's deadly in grenades, it's like being hit with a giant invisible truck. Same goes for most large explosions, you die before you get the chance to burn.
User avatar #1152682 - TheMather (05/18/2015) [-]
Grenades use solid of plastic explosives with a fuckton of concussive force.
A dust explosion is literally just powder catching fire at a high speed.

For comparison, C4 causes gas to expand at 8,092 m/s. Whereas dust explosions can only reach up to 2,000 m/s, which is in the case of coal dust.

Furthermore, due to the explosion occurring outside, almost all of the concussive force will be dissipated into the atmosphere. There's a reason you use a fragmentation grenade in open areas and a high-explosive grenade inside.

"too unfortunate to die" would kinda make sense for surviving the tornado fall, that explosion was visible from across the city. There's no margin of error or chance of survival for a normal human being.

It was a dust explosion. They don't actually produce that much concussive force, just a big, low-temperature fireball. They're pretty harmless unless you breathe in the flames.

Damn, that's a good ass explanation
There still was no reason to change the fight, it was fine the way it was. But anyone, just because Railgun had 1 good arc (which was established by the first series) doesn't make it a good show in general. I literally skimmed through episodes because of how boring they were.
This coming from someone who has watched 600+ episodes of One Piece, only skipping the specials.
User avatar #1152666 - TheMather (05/18/2015) [-]
They didn't actually change the fight to any significant degree. The events that took place were all the same, the only difference was how they looked. And that was because in Index we were viewing the fight how Touma saw it, and in Railgun we viewed it how Misaka saw it. The appearance was altered by personal bias. I bet you if we ever see Accelerator's memory of it in Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator, Touma will look pretty monstrous in the last moment.
And that's not the only good arc Railgun has. If you pay attention, you will notice how they're all actually pretty vital to the setting building:
The Level Upper was the predecessor to Testament, and the Misaka network.
The Capacity Down is the predecessor to the AIM Jammer.
And it introduces Kihara Gensei (note: The person who trained Accelerator's abilities was Kihara Amata) and Ability Body Crystal.

Railgun is, as promised in its concept, a view into what goes on behind the curtain of Academy City.

User avatar #1152688 - TheMather (05/18/2015) [-]
It is forming a ball, in the center of the opening in the clouds. She sees it as higher up because she sees it as a looming danger that cannot be dodged or blocked.
#1152689 - zionsype (05/18/2015) [-]
You're just making shit up now.
#1152672 - TheMather (05/18/2015) [-]
Here's your "explosion" as seen across the city. It's just smoke and embers left when Railgun pans out, and it's still close up. Seems to be the same size of smoke cloud to me.
User avatar #1152674 - zionsype (05/18/2015) [-]
...What's your point?
Explosions have force, one that big, even if it's fire quickly goes out, would undoubtedly kill a human.
It's not the fire that's deadly in grenades, it's like being hit with a giant invisible truck. Same goes for most large explosions, you die before you get the chance to burn.
User avatar #1152682 - TheMather (05/18/2015) [-]
Grenades use solid of plastic explosives with a fuckton of concussive force.
A dust explosion is literally just powder catching fire at a high speed.

For comparison, C4 causes gas to expand at 8,092 m/s. Whereas dust explosions can only reach up to 2,000 m/s, which is in the case of coal dust.

Furthermore, due to the explosion occurring outside, almost all of the concussive force will be dissipated into the atmosphere. There's a reason you use a fragmentation grenade in open areas and a high-explosive grenade inside.

Okay, we're done here if you're going to result to what is basically "My dad works at Microsoft"
User avatar #1152738 - TheMather (05/18/2015) [-]
Specifically I'm working on a Master's degree in Space Science and Robotics, being already licensed as an astrotechnologist.

I can present you with my documentation of academic performance or my letter of acceptance into university if you wish.
User avatar #1152721 - zionsype (05/18/2015) [-]
You looked up how to do the math. What you aren't taking into account is the SIZE of the explosion.
According to your math, being blasted by a C4 charge would only be 392kg of force.
That's obviously incorrect since a C4 charge would blast you into multiple pieces, but a 392kg guy standing on you would only hurt.
User avatar #1152735 - TheMather (05/18/2015) [-]
Wow, that is so horribly incorrect it's not even funny.
No, I didn't have to look up how to do the math. I'm doing space science, this shit is the fundamentals.

C4 would hit you with a shockwave of 13,600 kg. The 392 kg guy standing on you is accurate. For the record, this would destroy your insides and possibly crush your bones.

The size of an explosion determines the energy of the shockwave, not the force. If an explosive is unable to do any damage at all, using more of it doesn't work. However if it does do damage, then using more increases it.
User avatar #1152719 - zionsype (05/18/2015) [-]
Just because you looked up some quick facts doesn't mean anything.
If the explosion was so weak, why would Accelerator even bother causing it?
And why would such a weak explosion make him reconsider whether he could survive a nuke?
The explosion was apparently so strong it surprised ACCELERATOR, and that's obviously saying something.
User avatar #1152720 - TheMather (05/18/2015) [-]
I didn't look up some facts, I did the math.
And the explosion made Accelerator reconsider the possibility of him surviving a nuke because it used up a lot of the oxygen in the area. He noticed it was harder to breathe after the explosion so he realized that standing in the middle of a nuclear detonation would asphyxiate him.
User avatar #1152714 - zionsype (05/18/2015) [-]
"It shows him running away, cuts to a shot of the explosion happening, and then cuts to the aftermath."
And since he isn't the flash, he was in the center of it.
They fucked up, Touma should've died if what happened in Railgun actually happened.
In index the explosion is much smaller, and I'm pretty sure Accelerator says something about reversing it
User avatar #1152701 - zionsype (05/18/2015) [-]
"For a shockwave, that really isn't that fast."
The speed and force of things doesn't change because of what's causing them. Getting hit by a shockwave going 200m/s is the same as getting hit by a car going 200m/s
Also, in Railgun I'm pretty sure he just took the full impact. It was index that he hid behind a corner if I remember correctly.
Also, you said C4 is around 8000, and Dust Explosions are around 2000... that isn't that far off. And if you put 2 C4 next to each other, the explosion is bigger, and the bigger the explosion, the more force, and that was a HUGE fucking explosion.
Touma should've died if it really did happen the way Railgun showed it, end of story.
User avatar #1152718 - TheMather (05/18/2015) [-]
A better way to put it is that it's 3,800 kg/m^2, or 0.38 kg/cm^2. Which is the same amount of pressure as applied by a person weighing 98kg standing on you. Something which for a person of Touma's athleticism would be only mildly uncomfortable.
User avatar #1152712 - TheMather (05/18/2015) [-]
No, because air weighs next to nothing. Assuming you take it head on, you're hit by a surface area of ~1m^2. With the air going 2,000 m/s that's 2,000m^3 or 2,000,000 l of air per second. Since air has a mass density of 1.19g/l, that's 3,800 kg of force. Roughly the same amount of force as an average car going 2m/s, which is the speed of a slow walk.
And this is assuming you're standing in a wind tunnel that's blocked in the other end with the explosion happening literally in your face.

And Railgun doesn't show Touma being hit by the explosion at all. It shows him running away, cuts to a shot of the explosion happening, and then cuts to the aftermath.
User avatar #1152684 - zionsype (05/18/2015) [-]
"Whereas dust explosions can only reach up to 2,000 m/s" ...you realize how absurdly fucking fast that is? The speed of sound is 340.29m/s.
Even 1/10 of that will guarantee death.
User avatar #1152696 - TheMather (05/18/2015) [-]
For a shockwave, that really isn't that fast. Keep in mind what is hitting you is literally just a bunch of sound at once. A shockwave literally cannot exist that is slower than the speed of sound.
1/10th of 2,000 m/s would just be experienced as a change in air pressure, it'd pose less danger than sound.

Now Touma was even clever enough to run around a corner. And since shockwaves dissipate very quickly, what he was hit by was just wind, and furthermore that hit him in the back, away from any squishy bits. It'd be nearly impossible to get any injury from that unless it makes you fall over and hit your face on the ground.

Already seen that episode. Also it sounds kind of awful with her voice, the pitch and pronunciation really do not work well together.
Kugimiya has the best voice ever for lolis, but she can't do childish without destroying your eardrums.

Love her accent as that character though
User avatar #115 to #114 - yeorgh (04/19/2015) [-]
What? she sounds much better there than the usual flat chested tsundere role.
User avatar #116 to #115 - TheMather ONLINE (04/19/2015) [-]
As the character, yes, but not in those scenes. The overly childish pronunciation of that song kills it.
She does sometimes play kids, like she did in Pokémon XY a few months ago, but that really doesn't suit her, IMO, as you can't appreciate the voice of a whiny brat. Even her role as Happy in Fairy Tail is almost butchering her voice.

I mean, I hate tsundere, I didn't enjoy your favorite anime much and I'm not really a fan of romcoms. We have pretty different tastes, I'd say.
One thing we most certainly do share, though, is liking Misaka.
User avatar #75 to #74 - TheMather ONLINE (09/14/2014) [-]
It's not like Shana clones and romcoms are all I like. I prefer tomboys over Shana clones and romance-heavy action stories over romcoms.
Misaka is my overall favorite character in any medium, and unlike so many of the others who like her you don't just dismiss Index as inferior to Railgun. And to rationally be able to explain the things you don't like about it, of course that makes you a swell dude in my book.

Also your contribution to the recommendation board. The fact that you're willing to help other people like that is just awesome.
User avatar #76 to #75 - yibdiy ONLINE (09/14/2014) [-]

Thanks, man. It's probably because I like having discussions and you are great for this, I like talking to you. You aren't self-entitled elitist little **** and behave like a well-behaved person, I like that aspect of you very much. Something I thought was going to happen on /anime/... I thought wrong (for the most part, anyway).

Well, I remember how clueless I was back then when I started, so I'd like to help others to get into the hobby that I enjoy so much and is quite a big part of my life now.

Oh boy, that sounds so gay, but you understand, right?

Also saten added me to friends, so I can now go to Shin, great. Too bad I'll just lurk a lot to learn how things work over there before actually posting anything.
User avatar #77 to #76 - TheMather ONLINE (09/14/2014) [-]
Thanks. I often worry that how stubborn I am with my opinions makes me sound like a douche in prolonged discussions, so hearing you say that really means a lot to me.

And I decided to make the rec board for a similar reason. I quickly gained momentum when I started out, thanks to two of the guys I hang out with every day for the first year having years of experience watching anime, but as I ran out of obvious stuff to watch, I became more and more reliant on /anime/ for finding new ones. So last summer while the rec threads were rolling in like crazy, and due to the large disparity between people that were trying to help them out and people that were just bitching about it, I used that as an excuse to make a place where people that are having trouble finding stuff, like I was, could get help.
User avatar #78 to #77 - yibdiy ONLINE (09/14/2014) [-]
Nah, you are completely fine, you just stand by your convictions and opinions but without being an asshole about it and with rational explanations.

Yeah, it's great place for people to get recs from those, who are well-versed (unlike most of the internet) in anime/manga without being shat on (like they would be on /anime/ or /a/). It's also good when you'd like to watch/read something specific.

Woo. I am the most informed!

Anyways, it's romaji, not romanji.
Also didn't know asking for source/opinions was frowned on, and you might want to add "outside of the dedicated recommendation board" to the part about requests.

Updated what you commented on. Should I add some notes on VNs, or not bother? Also, trying to decide what format I want to put this in. Structure it as an image, make it a post, I don't know. Thoughts?
