  • 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

  • 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 !

  • Never get near crushed glass powder (or powdered glas fiber) without respiratory particle filter. You may end with millions of minuscule cuts in Your respiratory pipes and it may get worse during a pair of days -before geting better. It will feel like breathing sandpapper and you may lose your voice for days.

  • Protip regarding all the sneezing: glass dust is an irritant, it will screw with your respiratory tract. In future it would be a good idea to wear a respirator and goggles when making glass clouds with your guns. ;)

  • 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 :)

  • So, when you fire a bullet, it becomes LOADED with kinetic energy. So, when the bullet impacts, all the energy is transferred to the impacted object. In this case, a solid glass ball. Here's the funny thing. A sphere, in nature is the strangest 3 dimensional shape. When the bullet impacted, it created shockwaves creating those waves y'all saw. The reason why it cracked on the back is because all the shockwaves gathered at that point making that point have just slightly less energy than the impact point.

  • World War II Italians would pull bullets out of the casings and flip them so when fired can go to a metal plate that snipers hide behind for covered during trench warfare flipped bullet heads caused enough Force hitting in a certain way what happens with blunt objects with so much force causes it to chip from the other side was against the Geneva convention technically armor piercing at the time

  • Hey speaking as a glass blower, the reason why you kept sneezing was because the impact of the bullet to the glass caused a almost microscopic glass dust cloud that you were breathing in and it was causing your airways irritation. Long term exposure to breathing particles like that can cause conditions like silicosis.

  • The physical force from the impact is spreading around the ball from the outside and where the force hits on the back creates another set of cracks due to the vibrations hitting each other on the opposite side

    Phoenix AlexanderPhoenix Alexander13 tuntia sitten
  • at 8 min mark Just a question: does it have anything to do with its spherical shape and shock waves travelling on surface as well as through the body of the thing, impacting at one point opposite?

  • I’m pretty sure it a inside wave that’s not strong but when it hits where the back is it just backs a punch and like cracks. especially when its solid it goes the the middle and there’s not a wave bc it just travels down the middle that’s so when it’s not solid it’s a little inside wave blah blah blah what I said before and when it’s solid in side it just goes through middle. Well that atleast what my peanut brain thinks
