  • The seeming paradox that a glass is at the same time a liquid and a solid is not easily reconciled. Glasses are "solids" produced by cooling a molten liquid fast enough that crystallization does not occur at the normal freezing point. Instead, the liquid supercools into the thermodynamic never-never land of metastability: kinetically settled enough to exist as a well-defined state of matter, yet not truly thermodynamically stable. As the supercooled liquid cools to lower and lower temperatures, the viscosity of the liquid increases dramatically. That happens because as thermal energy becomes ever less available, chemical bonds within the liquid constrain the atomic motion more and more. As the glass cools, the time it needs to demonstrate liquid behavior (the "viscous relaxation time") increases and eventually reaches extremes. At the so-called glass transition temperature, the relaxation time is on the order of a few minutes. On a short timescale, the "liquid" glass will appear solid, but after a short while, it can be seen to be slowly flowing, like incredibly thick syrup. At still lower temperatures, the relaxation time reaches values that are truly geologic, i.e., many millions of years. Window glass at room temperature has a nearly incalculable relaxation time, approaching the age of the universe itself. For all practical observations, this glass is a solid. But its solidity is in the eye of the beholder.

  • The fact that the ball was cracking on the opposite side is pure physics. The place of the reverse crack is called the "antipodal point". When hitting a spherical object, the impulse is distributed over the entire surface as a wave until it converges at one point. If the impact is on an ideal sphere, this point will be directly opposite the place of impact. The more deviations from the ideal, the greater the point displacement. The effect is approximately the same as if you throw a stone into calm water, the collapsed wave gives a recoil equal in strength to ± 80% of the initial impulse. Such things are actively studied in neurosurgery and astrophysics in order to understand the consequences of traumatic brain injuries OR (especially caps for very smart ones below) meteorite falls.

  • If nobody answered, The outside of the glass ball is structurally inferior to the inside of the ball. I think when making them the glass cools faster on the outside giving it a weak structure. The inside of the glass remains molten, cools slower, and forms stronger crystal structures on the interior. this may be why the inside does not shatter and transfers the energy out the weakness of the outer shell

    WoziWoziPred dnevom
  • I don't know if this has already been answered but the effect of the glass breaking on the opposite side to impact is spalling, the impact sends shockwaves through the glass and where they converge again on the other side they kick off a scab of glass. Same way HESH shells work!

  • The cracking on the back is a result of its shape and density. Think about it, what does an object need to do to stop a bullet? Disperse its energy. All the energy from the impact is transferred through, and across the surface in a circular pattern, of the object you hit. As the energy travels further away from the impact less damage is done to the surrounding material. The denser a material is, typically the better it is at dispersing impact energy though this isn’t always the case. Now, here’s why it cracks on the backside. Most, I’d go so as to say 95% of targets are flat or slightly curved. These targets are spheres. All that energy from the hit is being transferred through the material to the backside, where the energy that was being transferred along its surface also converges at the exact opposite side of the hit, aka the antipodal point. Now it’s just a case of constructive interference. All the energy that made it to the antipode of the hit combines and cracks the glass. Simple physics, really cool result and an interesting way to learn about antipodal points.

  • I would speculate that the energy pulses, from the primary side, transmit to a common spot exactly on the other side, creating another "ghost impact". That secondary impact is probably 40% of the energy of the primary, giving you the results. This is due to the near perfect geometry of the glass ball as it perfectly transmits the waves of energy, pooling to the other side at nearly the same time.

    Bob UsseryBob UsseryPred 2 dnevi
  • My Guess would be that the glass ball is of a layered structure, illustrated by the pealing layers after each hit. The surface layers of glass have just enough flexibility to carry the impact wave from the bullet, carrying it around the sphere without cracking the glass layer itself. I would imagine that its only when the impact wave travels the sphere and collides with itself at a certain centralised point, that enough energy is maintained to crack the glass layer on the opposite side of target? I picture a meteor impacting an ocean planet and the displaced energy in waves, traveling the surface of the globe (perhaps only with enough energy to lift the water 20 ft and falling). However when the waves meet and collide at the same time at the same spot, does enough energy remain to lift the water 100ft for example. Even if the energy is dispersed quickly at that point? Can some one confirm if right in thinking this?

  • DemolitionRanch should use super high speed camera to see how bullets to penetrate

    al tangal tangPred 2 dnevi
  • The reason for the ripples I believe is because the shockwave from the impact turns the glass semisolid, and after they travel to the opposite side of the globe, they refract or reflect or something off of each other losing energy in the process, the more energy the farther those ripples bounce back. (Just a theory, a ballistics theory) Also, do not do what Matt consistently did here, which was breathe in the powdered silicates from the glass, it's on the same level, if not worse than breathing in fiberglass particles, you can damage your lungs after a few minutes of exposure. Prolonged exposure can lead to Pulmonary Fibrosis. Be careful and always wear respiratory protection when handling or damaging the integrity of normal glass.

  • Kinetic energy blows the back off the force of the bullet transfers through the glass bending because it's a spherical surface deeper impact bigger the bend that's why the first shots on the big ball went almost straight.

    Jimmy PhillipsJimmy PhillipsPred 2 dnevi
  • When the bullet hits the glass it makes the initial crack and the kinetic energy travels to the back and has no where to go so it makes a small crack

    omlet_boiomlet_boiPred 2 dnevi
  • It's the hardest and strongest in the middle, so when a bullet starts to go into it, it stops. Because of how much force goes through the middle across the ball, whenit leaves on the softer back it makes it shatter.
