  • what happened is that because the ball is round, so when the bullet hits the ball the shockwaves go around the ball and when the shockwaves get the the end they have no where else to do therefore destroying the back of the ball

  • Explanation to the physics it’s like a punch and a point is you punch something the energy is wide if you stab something the energy is focused when you punch the energy will go around and when you stab it goes in so that explains why there was a little hole with the pistols and not with the carbine

  • Go watch db drag racing. When you get cars that have real glass windows, they almost look fluid like the glass is able to flex. Bet that is what is happening at the lower powered shots. My guess anyway.

  • You have a really great demonstration of energy wave traveling around and through the glass ball. I confirms the observation that 2-3 minutes after the asteroid hit the Yucatan Peninsula (and wiped out the dinosaurs) a large land mass moved up and open up exactly 180 degrees on the opposite side of the earth.

  • Impact-waves travelling through the glass (very fast due structure of glass)[glass is actually neither a liquid nor a solid] They spread from the impact point in every possible direction. Glass breaks near impact due to the high amplitude of the impact waves -> „wavy“ breakout zone. They then spread in every possible direction wich lowers their amplitude, which explains less breakout further away from the impact. However due to the spherical shape, the waves travel „around“ the sphere and meet in the direct opposite. There the waves overly again and create a high amplitude, hence the breakout. Breakout is smaller due to other losses on the way. Some of the kinetic energy transfering into heat, some into hearable soundwaves, some into the sphere moving... etc. To sum it up, it’s the spherical shape causing it to break out in the back. I tried to keep it simple and kept away from using science language...

    Shane BLACKBURNShane BLACKBURN5 tundi tagasi
  • The shockwave of the impact travels as a circle through the glass ball. Spread out like this, the ball is able to withstand the kinetic energy of the shockwave. Once it reaches the other side, the shockwave is contained only by the small point on the back, meaning the energy density is much higher, and it is able to break the glass. Or something idk

  • I'm not educated in the physics, but I'm guessing the energy of the impact is spread out as it travels through the first half of the glass and then condensed on the other side causing it to shatter.

  • It's called the antipode effect. Most common on planets , where massive asteroids impact the surface and the shock waves travel around the entire planet meeting at a central point completely opposite, causing an outcrop hilly Terrain. And the case of the glass ball the effect is a cracking of the surface directly opposite where the bullets impacted.

  • The 50cal SR is designed to penetrate tempered glas and armored vehicles with enough force to kill someone behind it. If it hadn´t obliterated the glas ball I would´ve been very intriged

    its_just_cornflakesits_just_cornflakes10 tundi tagasi
  • My guese on the damage at the back of the ball is that the kinetic energy traveled through the glas like a shockwave and cracked it at the back when exiting. Since the ball is round (obviously) the energy spreads through the ball and concentrats again when the diameter decreases.

  • , however, actually neither a -supercooled or otherwise-nor a solid. It an amorphous solid-a state somewhere between those two states of matter. And yet liquidlike properties not enough to explain the thicker-bottomed windows, because atoms move too slowly for changes to be visible. The "exit wound" is probably similar to force in a liquid.

    Jon Arne JorgensenJon Arne Jorgensen10 tundi tagasi
    • Thicker-bottomed windows are due to the method of manufacturing.

  • The reason the back cracks but not the middle is cus the kinetic energy from the bullet can go thru the middle since it has somewhere to go but once it reaches the back it all gets built up and can’t go anywhere causing it to crack
