Abstract


From the previous paper, we were able to determine, hypothetically, the approximate amount of energy required to completely vaporise a human skeleton. In this paper, we focused on vaporising the whole water constituent of the body and the remaining tissues of a human body by finding the total dissociation energy for each of this constituent. For simplification, we used dried pork to represent the remaining tissues of the body. Finally, we calculated the combined amount of energy required to completely vaporise a human body to be 2.99GJ
