  • Much love to a fellow mad lad gun and demo enthusiast, but for the love of H&K just fuck shit up, skits ain't your forte my man. Oh and the glass ball thing is a result of kinetic energy from your bullet passing thru the ball and instead of being able to pass on the energy to another object, the energy bounces around the ball after crashing into the back, creating damages you saw on the backs, then dissipating within the ball. I am no scientist, I only know some basic and fundamental laws. I have never shot at a "crystal" ball before however

    Matthew Di SerioMatthew Di Serio19 klukkustundum síðan
  • The physics are the gun fires the bullet at such high speeds that when it hits the glass balls but there still force left from the impact and it travels through the ball and out the other side.

  • Because glass is not a solid or a liquid it's in-between. So I'm guessing it's like Shockwaves threw the glass like ripples on a pond but really slow.

  • I think it’s becuase of the kinetic waves that fallow bullets through the air the cracks in the back is just because the force didn’t expand and just went completely straight forward Edit: and force travels easily through solid objects without breaking it

  • the second mark inside the sphere is because of the impact wave it causes inside by increasing the pressure through the sphere's surface and it meets at a point behind the sphere. the farther away from the actual impact point the second mark is, the more powerful the shot is. so if the sphere's radius was smaller (such that the second mark is outside the sphere) it will break. makes sense ? im not 100 percent sure if this is right, its just what i think.

  • Those hits on the backside even if the bullet didn't travel through are probably the same logic as Bunkers in the World War. Explosives wouldn't penetrate them, but still knock out pieces that would kill the Soldiers inside anyway.

    peepee poopoopeepee poopoo5 dögum síðan
  • If you think of glass as being like water, you can understand how a shockwave could be transmitted through the glass. If you exploded something on the top on your pool, there would be the splash and all things equal, you would crack the gunnite base of the pool without displacing all the water. It’s something molecular that I heard or read about too long ago.

  • You don't need a 50cal or giant building to throw it off to shatter that ball,you just need to crush a spark plug and take a tiny pebble from the broken spark plug porcelain the size of a grain of sand and flick it with your finger at the ball and the ball will shatter into a million pieces,also hes sneezing and what not from the glass powder

    Brian ChauvinBrian Chauvin5 dögum síðan
  • Glass is actually a very thick liquid, not a solid, and the impact creates ripples which travel around the sphere. When all of the ripples converge on the back side of the sphere, they amplify each other, and it’s apparently enough to shatter some of the glass.

      T BomanT Boman4 dögum síðan
    • @T Boman That’s fine. The point about the traveling and converging ripples still stands, which was the real point I was making. No need to snark about it. Also, an amorphous solid is in a category between liquid and solid, and it has properties of both. I appreciate your point, but not the attitude.

  • Glass is actually a slow moving liquid. When you hit it, it transferred the energy in a kinetic wave until it reached the far side. I think the shape has something to do with the kinetic wave being echoed in the parabola from both sides.
