Weight of Blob: 976 lbs = 442.7 Kg

Assumptions: Blob is around 75% adipose tissue(by weight) the remaining being normal body tissue. This means 332 Kg is adipose tissue. 110.6 Kg is other misc. body tissue.

Important Formula:

Kinetic Energy: Pe= ½mv2

Calculations:

Ke= 1/2 (.0467 Kg)(853 m/s)2 = 16.98 Kj = 16980 J

Joules needed to Raise blob 1 Degrees Celcius:

(332 Kg * 2348 J/Kg) + (2348J/Kg * 110.6 Kg)= 779536J + 259688J= 1039224 J = 1039 Kj

How much does Blob’s Temperature increase? : 19.98/ 1039 = .016 degrees Celcius
