    @smartereveryday do you have access to a camera that shoots much higher frames per second? I've got access to very accurate larger caliber rifles and would love to see this shot again with a bullet weighing 140gr and moving about 2800 feet per second.

    Would the principle of Prince Rupert's drop work with other material such as steel aluminum? Soft metals such as lead and what would these principles do to affect building safety shields and structures?

    It has been about 40 years since I read up on the properties of glass. One was it was a supercooled liquid if memory serves. Over time glass will sag and deform. Are you using "fresh" Prince Rupert Drops? Might the internal stresses be releaving themselves if not?
    LOL, that is truly amazing watching the bullets shatter on the glass!

    Why is the fact that crystal class is harder thank lead bullets? Diamonds are basically similar in structure. Imagine if you can shoot a bullet fast enough to shatter a diamond? That would be a heck of an explosion.

    Pretty sure the string is breaking the tail. Some of those shots the bullet shatters and the glass breaks from the tail end. Should try doing it with a vice or something to take all the pressure off the tail. Cool video though.

  • woodsoundsflutes
    woodsoundsflutes 1 месяц назад

    Hey Destinhave you played with dampening the wave that travels down the drop to see if you can prevent it from shattering? Also, do you get the same effects as the drop if you drop a glob of molten glass into water to cool? Something that does not create a tail that is so fragile?

    Amazing video. But I REALLY wanted him to go in to detail about WHY that last Prince Rupert's Drop did NOT explode?! HOW did the tail avoid the fracturing created by the shockwave - which has occurred in and caused every other drop to explode as a result?

  • jerome magillicuddy

  • Alexander Craig
    Alexander Craig 1 месяц назад

    Is it just me or did the drop that didn't shatter only hang from one string? Is it possible that this is why the others shattered. The bullet hits the drop setting up a shockwave through the tail. The wave encounters the second string which causes added stress to that point in the tail causing the tail to rupture.

    If you're up for more Prince Rubert's drop experiments, you could consider trying to dampen the oscillations of the 'tail'. If these oscillations are what causes it to break and if you can stop that, you might be able to consistently make bullet proof glass :) I'm thinking rubber or maybe try to dip the tail in paint or something like that.

    Can anyone explain why the drop doesn't even move. I'd understand if it was being held in place but it's being held by string. You'd expect the impact to simply move the drop, not shatter the bullet.

    After watching this video and the video you posted with the .38 special. Is it possible the ones in the .22 video were breaking because you were hanging the drop from the tail rather than near the base of the head like you were with the .38 special?

    Hey man. Awesome stuff but have you tried holding the drop in a more stable way, like in some putty or something? Every time someone hits (or shoots, in your case) the drop, it is free to shake and so the shockwave up the tail always breaks it. What would happen if the whole thing is held securely then struck (or, again, shot)?
