Introduction

Feat in Question.

Homer and his son survived this one blast, and i'm gonna calc it.

Calc

He blew the roof, so since this is a one-story house, this means it has length worth of 14.6304 meters, and since the roof got blown in one frame, then this gives us the velocity.

Cartoons move at 24 FPS.

Timeframe = 1/24 s.

Velocity = 14.6304 / (1/24) = 351.1296 m/s.

Now, for the weight of the roof, According to this article, an average roof is around 22 feet wide and 48 feet long.

Area of roof = 22 * 48 = 1056 square feet.

The roof of the Simpsons' house looks like a  typical asphalt-shingled, wood-framed roof, which is around 15 pounds per square foot.

Weight of a roof per square foot = 15 * 1056 = 15840 pounds = 7184.903 kg.

Now, for the K.E.

K.E. = 0.5 * (7184.903) * (351.1296)^2 = 4.42921e8 Joules = 0.11 Tons of TNT (Small Building Level+)

Conclusion

April's Soda Blast = 0.11 Tons of TNT (Small Building Level+)
