Isn't it supposed to be 10x that of Earth's gravity?
Yeah it's 10x. I remember him saying it. Plus I just read it on dragon ball wikia.
Kaio's planet has a gravitational pull ten times that of Earth's, so it would be 10g. However, it's physically impossible for a planet to have a gravity of 10g. Long before that point, you'd reach the point where the planet in question would collapse into a star under the force of its own gravity. It's mostly pointless to ascribe any sort of real-world logic to Kaio's planet because something like that is physically impossible.

The simple fact that it has such a small diameter should clue you in to that. In order to have that kind of gravity, it would need to have a very, very high mass (as gravity is proportional to mass), which means it would be extremely dense. But like I said, there's no way that something like that can actually exist because of a lot of different physical constraints.
Yes, I ran into that problem.But I know King Kai's planet has a large mass and therefore density, but other than gravity, we have to try to apply atleast something to know how dense his planet is. If it's 10x Earth's gravity, it must have something over earth.Goku's feat must be huge, then.
Without an actual measurement of the planet, it would be impossible to tell exactly how dense it is. There are things in the real world that can get that dense, like neutron stars, but they're a bit of a headache to explain and I don't know enough about them to really do it properly. Obviously, though, neutron stars are made of plasma, not solid matter, so it's questionable whether or not the same rules would apply.If you ask me, it's probably best to not overthink this matter. You can't accurately calculate the planet's density without a measurement of its radius. While you could probably get its mass, I can guarantee you that the numbers wouldn't make that much sense. It's also worth noting that this planet is in Dragon Ball's afterlife, which could affect just how it behaves. Considering it's from another dimension that doesn't seem to play by the same rules, (I mean, time is also really bizarre there, along with the way that energy conventionally works in the series) I don't think that even if we could come up with accurate numbers that they would actually mean anything because of the different variables at play here. I mean, there are artificial devices that can also crank the gravity up a few notches in this series, but they're not increasing the mass of anything. It's all pretty much science fantasy nonsense.
Yes, I understand this.I actually just contacted my father, a science guy, on facebook to ask him "If Goku punched a room sized hole straight through Earth, how many tons will that be?"He responded with, "About 1,000,000 tons." And with my calculations, that's correct.
Know we know if the Gravity's greater than Earth's, the mass and/or density is greater than earth's. We also know that people can punch way harder than we can lift, and those are 2 different things.An average fighter and kick with the force of about 2-3 THOUSAND pounds. Similar with boxers.It that guy can bench about 300-350 pounds, that gives us a thing to go on.If Goku punched a hole weighing ATLEAST 1 million, than we can use that scale to see how much SSJ3 Goku can lift.I don't think SSJ3 Goku was trying at max to punch that hole, so it can potentially be a lot more.
Those numbers don't make any sense. 1,000,000 tons of what exactly? Are we talking PSI? I'd imagine a scientist would give the energy released in joules of energy. Does your father work for Nintendo too? Why no post some actual calculations?In fiction, these sorts of things aren't necessarily one to one with the real world. To give an example from another series, Marvel's Iron Fist, a superhero who uses chi to fuel his punches, has knocked the helicarrier clean out of the sky with a hit from his fists... yet can't actually bench press more than 600 lbs.Also, keep in mind that the velocity that something moves at has a substantial effect on the actual energy output of something. A drop of water moving at relativistic speeds could kill you, and that could very well explain the discrepancy between Goku's mediocre bench pressing and the actual impact of this particular punch. The speed of his punches affect how much force is being put out by them.
Well remember the factors. Supreme Kai summoned Katchin (I think its called) which was the most dense object in the universe and it wasn't gigantic (compared to king kais planet). So if in the dbz world you can have the most dense piece of metal and its only a 40m x 40m block then im sure king kais planet can have the density of something that would produce 10x gravity. I mean at the end of the day it boils down to it being DBZ logic and it doesn't make sense because they can introduce any type of material/ element / anything science related they want no matter how big or small.
