    Its called "Spalling effect". The kinetic energy follows through the object and fragments break off as fragmentation on the otherside following the energy.

    13:25 this all is because it is raw glass. Tempered shatters into much finer shapes. The shapes of the glass are mostly because of fracture physics.

    Think Newtons Cradle. The bullet, is the impacting ball. That crack on the back side is the energy transfer to the next ball. (if there was one) The bullet transfers the energy through a Longitudinal wave to the back side where the glass at the surface breaks. The energy transfer to the surface glass is greater than the tensile strength of the glass, causing a crack or break.

    Glass is a very weird material it can act as a solid and liquid at the same time. It cools in layers as it does it literally has to be cooled from it's liquid state to room temp over hours or it will literally shatter as it cools from the heat it has inside. It is just one of the weirdest things it can do.

    My theory is the shockwaves travel through the glass like ripples on a pond. The spot in the back is where all those ripples cross. When waves interact they cause interference. In this case, the energy stored in these waves isn't enough individually to disrupt the structure of the glass until they interfere with each other over a small area and cause the glass to crack.

    Glass is an amorphous solid, the engery transferring to the ball is traveling around and through the ball. Then coalesces at one point opposite. Also, dude, go to a doctor and get your lungs checked. Those allergies could be a sign of severe irritation and damge. You were potentially breathing in glass dust. Thats the equivalent to HEAVY asbestos exposure. Seriously.

    its using the kinetic energy to guide the force along the contour of the sphere until it finds the weakest point to escape think of it like electricity shocking a person the energy travels until it escapes the object

    I’m guessing with the crack at the back when you shot it the bullet sent a shockwave around the glass and it all collected into one point which caused a crack

    I think there there are three things going on here: the type of glass (e.g. Boron silicate), how it was manufactured, and the spherical shape maybe acting as a lens that transfers the initial shock wave around the sphere and then focuses it back to a point on the opposite side... anyway... really interesting video---thanks

    I have one problem with how you did this: you used the same ball for other rounds, when it was already damaged by the previous rounds. The damage just got compounded. A single ball for each round would be a more exact visual of its damage resistance to the different types. Beyond that, still had fun watching this video. Especially the part with the Raging Hunter.

    I'm pretty sure the reason of the cracks on the other sides is the shockwave from the impact being bounced around inside the ball till the shockwaves meet on the other side making another shot like force but weaker and creating another small bullet like impact

    The magic behind the secondary crack on the backside: The shockwave from the first impact is traveling around the spehere and the shockwaves meet in the same place on the other side of the sphere :D This is also happening on Earth. Teoretically, if Earth got hit by meteor, the impact would cause massive earthquakes on the other side of the globe too :D Also I think that is why brain is damaged also on the other side when you are hit in the head. Cause the shockwaves are traveling around your head and they meet in one point on th oposite side :D

  72. German Jake

    German Jake6 timmar sedan

    Two things that could explain it. The glass ball is very unflexible and the sudden impakt of the bullet creats a compression/shockwave wich travels the path the bullet would have taken and comes aout the other end. When it reaches the other side it shatters the the glass on the "exit" Point as the glassball is in itself very hard but also brittle. Like this office plaything (Newtons Cradle) with the balls to swing. The other option which might happen is that the Compression wave is almost everywhere and travels on the more or less outside and meets again on the other side. Like on a round Wavepool when the waves meet in the middle it creates a big singular wave like here: Its from the Slow Mo Guys. So far my theories but Smarter Everyday shoud clear that up still !

    For all those who don't understand why its cracking, the momentum from the bullet keeps going through the glass, and once it runs out of glass and hits air, it kinda yanks the glass to the point it cracks. Kinda like running attached to something, and reaching the end of the rope, but you break what the rope is tied to. Continuation of momentum is fun :)
