Maximum Thrust Provided by Iron Man’s Suit

This Paper was my entry in a Science Fiction Paper Presentation Competition at Tryst, IIT Delhi.

Abstract:

In this Analysis done on Iron Man’s Mark VI suit used in the Movies Iron Man 2 and The Avengers we try to find out exactly how much thrust can those shiny little repulsors provide. Assuming that Tony Stark used the full thrust from his suit when trying to “jump-start” S.H.I.E.L.D’s Helicarrier’s Ducted rotors, we will first provide an analysis of the thrust provided by a single rotor on the helicarrier, and then calculate the thrust of Iron Man’s Repulsor Beam. And subsequently deduce the amount of power his arc reactor uses.
