# The Force Power of Ashoka Using Physics

I’m really quite excited about the upcoming Ashoka series on Disney Plus. Oh, you haven’t seen the trailer? Well, here it is.

Since I can’t yet watch the show, I am left with one reasonable alternative — physics calculations. Yes, I’m going to use the trailer to estimate Ashoka’s power. In physics, we define power as the rate of change of energy.

So, if I can calculate both a change in energy for something along with a change in time — I can get the power. It will be fun.

# Slowing a Fall

In this first scene, Ashoka cuts through the floor of some place (no idea where) and falls to a level below. But wait! Does she actually fall or does she use the force (should The Force be capitalized?). Here’s what it looks like.

Just looking at it, it seems too slow for falling. OK, a quick disclaimer. I have no idea about the gravitational fields on…
