This is the perfect demonstration of physics. Internal stresses as opposed
to external forces. Beautiful cinematography Destin! You should test one of
those window breaking devices that you put on a car keychain incase your
car floods, and see if it hurts the Drop at all

Автор Matt Conz ( назад)
What would happen if you could make a PRD in microgravity? Would the same
principle still hold, but form a sphere instead of a droplet?

Автор drtazzle ( назад)
Have you thought about trying this underwater? Perhaps the water would
dampen the shockwave through the drop sufficiently to stop the tail

Crash a Prince Rupert's Drop under a hydraulic press and shoot slow mo
video. I want to see how much pressure it can take

Автор Jonathan Lemieux ( назад)
Have you ever considered that the vibration isnt the cause of the shatter
but in fact the bullet is moving so fast at impact that the tip of the drop
is actually compressing into the tail instead? In essence the tail has no
time to absorb the inertia. Think of it the other way around.

Rain Drop. Drop Top. Prince Rupert's Drop.

There is a video of a guy using his hydraulic press and it takes 20 tons of
pressure to shatter the head of the prince rupert's drop. The tail remains
intact. It's called prince rupert's drop vs hydraulic press.

I need help explaing something, I did something by accident and have no
clue what's going on. I put my finger on my nose so the tip of my finger is
right in the middle of my eye. I then slowly moved my finger and it seemed
the objects in the background started to "bend". I have no clue what's
happening I thought it was the gravity of my finger slightly bending light
but I know that can't be it cause my finger doesn't have enough mass.
Please help I know it's got something to do with light but I just don't

Автор Siberianhuskybud The Grey Wolf ( назад)
i think it looks amazing when you hit the drop straight on and the bullet
turns into a halo of shattered metal

Destin could you look into why cutting aluminum foil sharpen scissors? I
can't come up with an answer and I thought you are great at finding experts
in everything.

Автор Balue ( назад)
Does this mean it can be used as body armour? In the video, the bullet is
the one that is first to broke part. Then the impact from the bullet to the
drop caused a drop tail to shakes, which then caused the chain reaction to
be exploded.

Автор Christopher Hanthorn ( назад)
Could you suspend a marble in the air using air nozzles, superheat it and
while it's molten drop it into water so it won't have a tail? Or maybe use
one of them sound tractor beams to suspend one to superheat it? I want to
see what it can take and not take damage. Maybe then shoot it from a
paintball gun...Or catapult it at high speeds into things ...

So, hipotetically, if a Prince Rupert's Drop had infinite lenght, would we

I just had the thought, if you made a Prince Rupert drop and had it fall
into liquid nitrogen instead of water would it develop higher internal
stress or will it not be able to with stand the shock? Would different
temperatures of glass or liquid produce different effect in soft glass or
make it possible to make drops with materials with higher or lower COE's?

Автор Dustin Sylvester ( назад)
couple of questions Destin, Lets say we discover a way to create a prince
ruperts drop sans tail, would it retain the incredible strength, or would
it just end up being an overproduced marble? the other question is much
less important, (to me) but what purpose exactly does resubscribing serve
exactly? Is it just to gain access to the notification bell or are "old"
subscriptions actually different from new?

The way the glass breaks does not surprise me at all. Most of us know a
bullet cannot push a 150 lb gelatin block off a table. But the vibration of
the bullet passing through the gelatin makes the block flip off the table.

Has this been done on the hydraulic press channel?
Edit: Well, it has on ONE of them at least..

would a prince ruperts drop made in space be extremely hard to break as itd
tave no tail?

Автор STroB ( назад)
1-make a ball of red hot melting glass.
2-drop it in water.
3-you have a round Rupert's drop with no tail, so much more durable.

Автор blackcool77 ( назад)
if the bullet was harder would it explode the way it does in a hydraulic

you should have hung it from the middle so we would know if it's the shock
wave or the leverage of the head that broke the drop

It would be very interesting to see what would happen if the glass was
melted on a spoon (or ceramic surface) and then lowed into the water to
cool it without forming a tail - the resulting ball / disc of glass should
be basically indestructible.

The fact that the bullet shatters before the drop made out of glass, is
mind blowing and awesome.

Автор Marcus Adams ( назад)
It almost looks like the force against the string that's supporting the
tail, caused by the bullet strike, is itself breaking the tail.

I wonder if the temperature of the water has any effect on how the drop is
formed? Like would the glass be even stronger if glass is dropped into
liquid nitrogen?

Автор Gert Bolten Maizonave ( назад)
I couldn't find this suggestion in the comments. Did you consider adding
some kind of foam to the end of tail of the glass drop in order to absorb
the energy and keep the tail from wiggling? This could make every drop

What would happen if you melted the tail off right close to the bulb? Would
it be that it wouldn't vibrate enough to break at all anymore?

Could one somehow put a lot of rupert's drops together and somehow make it
