In this paper we discuss the potential energy associated with a sphere of hydrogen once all of its electrons have been removed, which we have used as an approximation for a person. We calculated this energy to be 4.8x10^29 J. We compared this value to known processes and it was found to be extremely energetic, billions of times greater than nuclear explosions and of a similar magnitude to the Sun’s energy output. We also found that the same process when applied to an approximation of an ant has 1.5 × the energy of the Tsar bomb.
