Sun stone
« on: July 18, 2014, 07:44:53 pm »
First forgive my English I do not live in US

Ok in chrono compendium

Its says the amount of energy of the sun stone is 4.184*10^9 Joules

But lift zeal continent would need a greater amount of energy

lets calculate the amount of energy
Let's say Zeal irradiates downwards some energetic or magical radiation; these magic particles would be massless such as light so in order to calculate  the amount of energy used we must use Impulse-momentum theorem

the amount of power  need is P=mgc
c the speed of light, M mass and g gravity
the total mass of zeal would  be like Greenland mass

so lets calculate the mass of Greenland (earth continental crest density*wide*high)
8.12282E+14 kg

Now lets calculate the amount of power:

-The sun stone needs 2.38808E+24 W to keep zeal floating around
Now lets say the sun stone kept zeal in the sky for the last 300 years until it lost its power

So the sun stone total power is  3.71394E+34 J

how is that possible
Lets imagine that the sun stone is fuel by the enormous power of the sun that hit the earth and sun keep is a special point where the planet release some of the energy collect from the sun

Earth receive 173,000 terawatts from the sun
Earth in 65 billion year gets 3.49764E+35 W

With those numbers in mind the sun keep release only 6.3 of the total amount of energy that earth collect from the sun

Is perfectible possible to think that the sun stone power is 3.71394E+34 J

in my theory sun keep is a power spot of the planet

Well, I'd be remiss if I didn't point out that CT's planet may have different sun energy outputs.

But! The difference is SO great that we can assume that CT's sun isn't enough. So... if we're trying to make physics and accounting work, I have a few... guesses.

One, the power to raise Zeal as a continent wasn't solely based on the sun stone.

Two, the continent wasn't as big as we assume. (Even though there may have been a lot more than we saw in the game. Mt. Woe, for example, was a big ol' floating land mass that we didn't see on Zeal's map.)

Three, the continents weren't ever raised until they tapped into Lavos.

We talking the game now... i think them not think that anyway...
