Prince Rupert's Drop vs 50 BMG api

Автор SaiKrishna KVMB ( назад)
what would happen if u repeat the experiment with a modified prince rupert's drop?
like... connecting multiple bulbs to a common thin junction... would it break from th junction to the bulbs.... if yes... which bulb would go out first?

The bullet shattered 😯😯

Автор robert fidelis piedad ( назад)
the force of the bullet traveled from the hit point (head) to the tail.. when it reached the tail, all the force moved nowhere and it was so strong that it broke the tail.. what if u reverse the hit point..? try the tail first.. if it survives, maybe the head will break first going toward the tai.. or try hitting in the middle..? will it break on both ends (head and tail) and going back to the middle where it was hit first..?

since a drop is made from the way it cools could you make one out of say metal or better yet the non-newtonion solid

Try and put it in a vacuum chamber and see what happens

Автор CuteWallflowergirl ( назад)
So the bullet shattered first? That's what I'm seeing is anyone else?

All this bell talk is concerning... I don't like it, I want to see all new videos when I go to the site, not be constantly interrupted by it. Is all this because people don't go to their subscription tab any more? Do they just stay on the home screen and wonder why not all sub videos show up?

Автор Liso Campos ( назад)
just reverse it. make PRD bullets and fire those. wow you can make armor, sheilds, bullet/ weather proof glass. we do live in the glass age

Автор Zacchaeus58 ( назад)
why does it have to be a drop? why cant you super heat the glass in a mold and then cool it?

Автор Tismic ( назад)
You should get Byron Ferguson to shoot a Prince Rupert's drop.

Автор The True Turtles ( назад)
Would you be able to shatter it if you had a fast enough method since it won't be able to react fast enough? I have no knowledge on this topic, but my thought process was that you can run on water if you are fast enough (not humanly possible of course). So could it if it did not have the "arch bridge effect" to where it gets harder as you add more pressure.

Автор Rusty. ( назад)
Could you cut the tail off and whack it with stuff? Maybe it won't explode?

Автор D-Schloss the boss H-town rowlin hard ( назад)
would it shatter in a vacuum? because it would pull on the outside layer possibly alleviating some of the pressure

Since you had a hammer, a bullet shooting at it... what does it takes to break it from the head?

Автор Pika dash ( назад)
encase the drop in a solid material, but leave a hole at the head and shoot that so the tail doesnt vibrate

Demo ranch should do something with him.

The head of the drop looks extremely hard and restant

team up with demolition ranch and he will have a gun to destroy the drop for you!

hydraulic press? Then you could test how strong the bulb is without moving the tail. just an idea...

Wondering would it be possible to make rupert's drop into a "rupert's sphere" so there are no weak points? @SmarterEveryDay

Автор advfilmer ( назад)
Just an observation from you video in the shape of the ruperts drop and the strength of the glass, nature has often used coiled shapes to produce strength in what are normally fragile materials. I'm thinking Goat horns, snail shells and ancient cephalopods. Might be worth looking into material strength and how it relates to the Fibonacci sequence found in the structure of so many natural items.

Автор Seth Bettwizilch ( назад)
wow, at 4:16, you can hear the shattering occur.

i am wondering how much the eddy current will slow a projectile when you shoot a neodymium magnet slug into a thick copper pipe..

Автор IOUaUsername ( назад)
Step 1: Build PRD bullet (maybe launched from a long barrel with slow-burning powder to prevent it exploding on launch)
Step 2: ?
Step 3: Go on to regret your invention like Nobel did with dynamite.

Автор IOUaUsername ( назад)
Isn't FPSrussia in Alabama as well? He has a range of guns including 50 cal and even anti-air cannons. A collaboration video would let you find out if a tungsten carbide armour piercing 50 calibre bullet can defeat the Prince Rupert's Drop. After all, they can be about 5x the speed of a 22 round, and tungsten carbide is harder than glass, while lead is very soft.

Автор David Bock ( назад)
Ok this was just a stupid cool video and fun experiment. It's so hard to believe those things can take a bullet. Pretty awesome!

@SmarterEveryDay Hey Destin first off I love your channel and I love what you do you actually have the job that I always wanted but beside that at my school in tallahassee florida my chemistry teacher holds a science news article every other week and the best article gets shown on the board so I did an article on your prince Ruperts drop videos which fascinate me completely and I had the best article out of 125 students i linked the videos to her and cited them to you and I'd like to attribute my success to you and I'm gonna wrap this up but I love what you do and the science you do and I love your contribution to the science community thank you so much for the knowledge
sincerely ~martin

Hey Destin I know everyone here would like to see this in a bigger scale, but I was thinking in a different way. Try using a diamond to take it down. If it doesnt work, try shooting a diamond one. As of being told diamond is the strongest material on earth so..
Let me know your thoughts on it.

Hi man, will you be able to place the Prince Rupert's Drop in solid mold of concrete or a different staff just to stop the vibration strike the tail, so in order to see the real toughness of the drop by showing how much of the glass particle is been removed by the bullet.

Автор Mario Scognamiglio ( назад)
is it possible to make one without such a long tail? It would be extremly strong

Автор Josh Kilen ( назад)
so cool.

Автор Heather Grimes ( назад)
Looks kinda like sperm

Автор James Cox ( назад)
Have you ever thought of creating a thin, conductive, release-able mold so that you can test cubes of glass? Maybe they'll have the same hardness properties without the weakness of the tail. I suppose it would be as fun because they don't explode, but imagine how indestructible it would be!

I'm also wondering,  how a layered prince Rupert's drop works ( a drop made from glass with an onion peel affect   ie 2 or 3 or more glass types layered  that contracts at different rates to form different stress layers.

Автор MrYendor1968 ( назад)
try making a bullet from a prince Rupert's drop in the shape of a bullet, and see how deep in will penetrate into a group of steel or lead plates. ( I'm wondering if it would make a super hard hitting armour piecing projectile ) but I do think you would need a faring or waddings to prevent it from jamming or shattering before it leaves the barrel

Imagine: a Prince Rupert's Drop made of carbon nano tubes that are designed to
1) have the tail break off before the energy returns to the drop
2) regenerate a tail almost instantly
3) packed inside kevlar clothing

Hey what would happen if you were to form a price Rupert's drop in liquid nitrogen? would it strengthen the structure or not work at all

Автор Bose-Einstein ( назад)
2:37 No way... The bullet didn't break the glass -- the vibrations traveled through the drop and must have violently shook the end of the 'tail', shattering it. That's amazing.

Can't you just melt off the tail to a much shorter length that won't be so susceptible to shock?

Автор Japanese Cheese Puff ( назад)
So, what you're saying is that if there was a way to keep the tail completely stable, you could not break it?

Автор matszz ( назад)
Why oh why did you not shoot it at the right end, the same end you cut to set it off in the first video? Drove me crazy.

Автор Mike Veator ( назад)
If the tail were coated in in something shock absorbing, for example, silicon rubber, would it survive the impact of the bullet completely?

Автор Ahrs32 ( назад)
hey i just watched a video from the hydraulic press channel where they press a Prince Rupert Drop and I swear to you it shatters from the top, not the tail. please watch and explain
