The only real Blue Shell was what made Carrero Blanco accomplish his dream of flying. All pray the blue shell.

A strike at a 60º angle it leaves another mechanic to stop you vehicle, pushing the bottom of the car to drag against the floor, sure the drag wouldn't be as efficient as the direct transmission of momentum but you are already applying only half the total force, the vertical component of the force applied would be aprox. 1.73 (square root of 3) times greater than the horizontal component, assuming a drag coefficient (steel X Asfalt) of 0.3 it would still be a bit over half (0.55) the original, at 60º angle, force applied. IF that is true, that would mean that of the total stopping force applied to the cart, more than a half of it would come from the bottom of the vehicle dragging against the floor, wich means your blow to the face would not be 21,803N, but 10,691N. That all assuming that whatever mass system Nintendo used in this game has linear correlation to our weigh system. Making their system exponential would be a D*ck move.

Now that height and weight have been calculated, how long until we come back to these numbers to use Mario's BMI in a theory for some reason :D

To avoid the blue shell/it's explosion in first, I'll make sure to try and grab an item that I can actually hit myself with right before the blue shell does because instead of the long time it takes to recover from the blue shell I only have to wait for the slight spin out from a green shell/etc.

lets not forget in the first mario kart the blue shell didnt fly up at all all it did was glide its way by knocing everyone in its path way dead until it got to first place then flew up and smacked him which means the blue shell in the first mario kart was stronger than the blueshells in mario kart 7 and mariokart 8
Simon The Gamer (20 hours ago)
If I see a blue shell warning, I come to a complete stop until I'm passed, doing this has a smaller effect than getting hit actually hit with the shell.

You have not calculated how as the blue shell gets to the first player the shell also destroys any one in it’s way and will not even slow down plus it can go a lap with out slowing down so if you calculated that it should blast the stadium into a huge crater

Seherat Alih (1 day ago)
Dear Matpat, first thing I have to say is that I really enjoy watching your videos. BUT: Please please please watch your uppercase and lowercase while dealing with physical units and symbols. It starts with things like writing meters in uppercase and ends with writing T for time which normally stands for temperature. Here the mistakes I have seen: M for meters -> should be m T for time -> should be t P for momentum -> should be p (with a vectorial arrow, without one it would be pressure) M for mass -> should be m V for velocity -> should be v J for impulse -> which should be capital i for impulse (with a vectorial arrow, without one it would be current; also explains the origin) KG for kilogram -> should be kg (lowercase k also for kJ and km) S for second -> should be s G for acceleration of gravity -> should be g Also you have shown that you normally know how its done by using lowercase r for radius. sorry for being a smartass and for my bad english
Tyler Wengrzyn (1 day ago)
Though this now raises another question. The speaker item in MARIO kart 8 can stop the blue shell. So what would be the math for that?

Proximus (1 day ago)
Wait , did you actually multiply Kg with M/S at 08:32 ? Your calculations are wrong bro , you cannot multiply the scalars without converting KG into SI unit of mass (grams). So you will need to add another 3 zeroes to the equation. If you are using the CGS unit for calculation you cannot incorporate KG into that.

How much force does the horn have then, since it stops the blue shell even in descent? And, not just stops it, it crushed it out of existence.
Wait,couldn't you used the weight from the Olympics video?

I figured out how to block the blue shell in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe all you have to do is get that red box thing with the horn on it and when the shell is above you use the red box thing and BOOM RIP blue shell

Jacqueline Mackie (2 days ago)
When I play Mario Kart and notice that the blue shell has just been sent on it's way while I am in the lead, I slow down and let the person in second place pass me and look on from a safe distance as the driver in front of me gets the blue shell instead before I again have first place in the race. Muahaha! (although I rarely have first place, so the strategy is almost never used except in singleplayer.) :P

Just a question, can we still assume that all the characters of the mushroom kingdom have the same bone and body structure as humans, animals and plantation found on earth. Cause Mario is an example of a “human” that can live in an environment where normal humans cant live in (like the force of gravity of a planet is too great on the human body, which could cause the destruction of capillaries, nerve cells, etc.) Or just put the “that’s just a theory” stamp and leave it alone. If the characters within the mushroom kingdom are in fact different in anatomy and or molecular structure, won’t this video and the other video on Mario Cart be kinda “incorrect” in terms of the potential injuries and dangers?
MarthD (2 days ago)
Wrong formula at 11:17.
Gigatreecko (2 days ago)
The ironic thing is that your data was based on Dry Bowser's mass. Dry Bowser will just shrug off the explosions and keep driving, because he's already dead. In the game we can clearly see that the sturdiness of karts in the mushroom kingdom are not to be messed with and a drybones always reconstructs itself even after being shattered.
FSKyuremYT (2 days ago)
Back in the day, I used to manipulate my first place position to my advantage when someone sent a blue shell: slam the breaks and let the person behind me take the hit then take back first place. Worked every time

13:00 by fox 2 heat seekers u mean like potential fox 4 identification friend or foe designated seeker missile even tho 4 is for aircraft guns but pilots usually go *guns guns guns (brrrrt)*
Well actually i realized that blue shell should be fox rifle (just rifle) like an agm65 maverick which is an imaging infrared seeker or an electro-optical seeker

You assumed 2 units is twice as heavy as 1 unit, when it could be a non-linear scale like decibels. Also, what about the bullet bill strength? Blue Shell doesn't do ANYTHING on it.

Liam de los sauces (2 days ago)
Wait the blue shell hovers over whoever is in first, dive down at a 60° angle and gets the kart to stop in .55 seconds. Aren't the 60° already taken into account? Why the need to then go and make new calculations to see how much stronger it is at 60°. Or have I misunderstood something? Maybe if hit head on, how far backwards would the kart go flying?

There's an easy way around that. Just stop dead in your tracks when you see the blue shell coming. Sure, you may be launched out of your seat when you brake to a speed of 0mph with no seatbelt, but at least you won't be dead from a blue shell
