A4_4 Jack-Jack Keeps Falling On My Head

Nat McCabe, Charlotte Paton, Matthew Wing, Kaia Thomas


In The Incredibles, the antagonist, Syndrome, kidnaps the super human baby, Jack-Jack, by flying up towards a plane by using rocket-propelled boots. Jack-Jack attempts to escape him by turning his entire body into metal, causing Syndrome to drop rapidly due to the sudden change in mass. In this paper, we chose the metal platinum, and focus on the forces Syndrome will experience after Jack-Jack changes into platinum. We find that they would hit the ground with a velocity of around 38.7ms−1 and an impact force of 268.4MN, which is 500x to that of a car crash.
