One Piece - Physical Excursion to Sanji's kick power (by an uncredited physics student)

I can't calculate such stuff myself (math disorder) but I always enjoy reading it. Of course, the results of such calculation are always ridicolous imposible but who cares. So why not have a little fun with your studies and use your favorite manga character as an guinea pig. Have fun!The calculation refers to the following assumptions:

* There is no wind.

* Sanji kicks Bon Curry who flies 50m far. Therefor x=50

* Bon Curry is 2m tall and gets kicked into the face. Therefor y0=2

* Since Bon Curry lands on the ground: y=0

* Sanji kicks horizontally, therefor vy=0

Because the trajectory is always parabolic, we can now calculate how long Bon Curry flies:

* After 0,64 seconds, he flight 50m far.

With this, we can calculate now how fast he becomes directly after Sanji's kick:

* Sanji's kick abruptly speeded him up to 280,8km/h!

If we assume that the contact between Sanji's leg and Bon Curry's head took 0,1 seconds...

* ... therefor the speed-up is 780m/s²

And if we further assume that Bon Curry weights 70kg...

* ... than a power of 54600 Newton is necessary to let him fly like this...

* ... which is 5571kg.

As result we can say, that Sanji's leg as well as Bon Curry's neck are extreme solid and that Sanji shows us a monstrous kick power.
