Physics? What physics?
@Branth, for anyone that wants to know them: ground isn't fixed as much as it seems. The floor exherts an equal and opposite force on you when you step on it. This is because, if it didn't, you would fall right through it. Which is what happened in this case. The amount of force he exherts on the ground is greater than the maximum force the ground can push back with (ground isn't a Devine object with unlimited force) so he falls through. Even if the ground were one solid object, already compressed to its minimum, with nothing to give way, then if he pushed on the ground with enough force, ie he is strong enough and the robot still refuses to move, the ground will still give way because the entire earth would literally be pushed down a distance equal to twice the length of his arm and he would literally be holding the weight of the world.
@BunnyGruff, weird typo, that minimum was meant to say maximum. Essentially the Earth would be one solid ball that can't just be 'dented' in.
@BunnyGruff, only problem with this point fitting into reality is that the giant robot should have done the same by the looks of relative size.
@The Megaton Bomb, On the other hand, the robot has its weight dispersed over a much larger surface area.
@Branth, most soil in my part of the country can only safely hold about 6,000 lbs/ft^2. So if the pressure of anything is greater than that, then you'll end up with settlement that you don't want. That's why footings are usually designed with only 2,500 lb/ft^2 allowable pressure. Plenty of safety factor there. All I'm saying is that in a comic book world where aliens are attacking the world and 'Bulk' can lift almost anything.... Yeah. Physics definitely says this could happen.
@BunnyGruff, your the real MVP
@The Megaton Bomb, In my head the robot didn't weigh enough to break the ground, but instead when the dude tried to lift his leg, he pushed his leg down with force equal to the force that the guy was lifting with, so there would be 0 net force and he would not move, but the guys force is being applied to two objects, the robot and the ground, so if the robot doesn't move, all the force transfers to the ground. Essentially I'm saying the ground isn't fixed but the robot is. Idk why the robot is fixed, maybe it has technology we haven't discovered yet that allows it to be fixed.
@BunnyGruff, but should the robot weight enough, which we really can't tell, them it would sink through the earth because the surface area wouldn't be large enough to distribute all the weight from gravity pulling the robot to the core. Granted the surface area is manifold greater than bulk's two feet, but the psi needed to be pushed into the surface would have been reached long before all of the robots weight had been put on bulk. How much this offsets the fact that the weight is stationary, we have no way to assess, but square cube law tells me that something that big made of metal will want to push into the ground. (This is all assuming the robot is simply sitting on the ground with nothing but the ground supporting it's weight.)
@Culdogg, from the looks of it's two feet, not that much relatively speaking.
@BunnyGruff, this makes me moist.
Is this the knockoff marvel universe
@Fat cow, League of Super Redundant Heroes. It's a webcomic that parodies all things superheroes
@Fat cow, no. It’s a knockoff of the DC Universe. Get it together mate
Generic Avengers assemble!
Strong is the strongest there is!
@Tyler643, Bulk crash!
