We have inertia, mass, dynamic pressure, plus exerted energy dissipation..and the shape plays a role as well...circular objects with a certain mass will dissipate energy on the opposite pole if said energy was a specific sized impactor with enough mass in relation to circular object.

Shock wave transfers across the surface and meets at the rear of the ball causing a post shock. And the sneezing if from the glass in the air. Wear a mask next time

It's cracking at the back in the same way a newton's cradle works. The energy is "pushed" from the point of impact, through the sphere and gets released at the exact opposite point as the path of least resistance. Transfer of kinetic energy, simple but really cool. *edit spelling

When he shoots the .50 a chunk of glass misses him by inches and almost hits the camera. That's insane

Since the ball is layers the energy goes throught the layers and like a bag of chips escapes throught the wekest point which is the back because of the inertia through the center and from the layers

The crack comes from all of the distributed forceoving around and through the ball meeting at a point in the back where it releases the energy out into the air since there is no other direction for it to go

I have an idea for an additional experiment. Take a ball of glass, and dip it in bed liner a few times. See if holding the glass in place will make it more effective at stopping a .50 BMG.

Im no expert but i think the back of the glass ball cracking isn't becuas the ripple effect but the bullet pushing it so much that it transfers through the glass, and not around it, but hey thats just a theory A GLASS THEORY
Bacteriophagebs Time siden
The shock isn't going _through_ the ball, it's going _around_ it. The impact ripples through the outer layers of the glass in all directions from the point of impact, then all those shockwaves intersect on the opposite side of the sphere, where they do sort of the same thing as a shaped charge, focusing the remaining energy on basically a single point. I suspect that the depth of the rear fractures is the same as the depth the bullet reaches in front.

Re do this with the slow mo guys I think it would be epic
Thomas Kulla
Thomas Kulla Time siden
The reason the glass is breaking on the exact opposite side is because of transfer of kenetic energy. Glass ripples when hit with force and spreads out the energy. So when the ball gets hit on the front it ripples the energy all around the ball until it all converts in the same place again, which results in it cracking.

Force is distributed throughout the ball from the impact. The forces recombine at the antipode (opposite) side of the ball and create another "impact" force weaker than the original. Same thing happens with earthquakes and the earth.

I think I figured it out: the most of the energy is not going into the ball itself, but going around the surface. So the little bubble or breaks on the other side is the energy concentrating on the opposite end of the ball.

Ok so glass is what is called an amorphous solid, meaning it has SOME liquid like and SOME solid like properties. The force of the impact will have traveled through the glass like it would in water.

The reason why cracks form on the other side is dude to the energy from the bullet hitting one side traveling through the ball and having no where to go so it breaks the end

The glass thing could be because glass is actively a fluid and it is transfering the energy through the glass ball.

its kinetic energy or whatever because when the meteor hit a chunk of the earth flew into space and that is what we know as the moon. that is why the big ball had a crack or small chunk come out of the back.

It's the same scenario with High explosive squash head tank shells in WW2... wouldn't actually penetrate but the shock would create spalling (shrapnel) inside the tank compartment from the shock wave.... Love your videos and humor... keep up the great work!

Isn't that a form of "spauling", sort of like what used to happen to the first tanks in WWI, after which we learned to paste the insides of tanks with ballistic cloth to retain/capture steel that popped free like shrapnel when a shell hit the tank from the outside? Or, you see it with gunshots that hit a window that don't go through. On the other side a conical bit of glass is popped free. Energy transfer to the far point in-line with the impact.
