  • If you had a new one for each shot would be great but yeah it acts like glass but harder, the sharp pieces you got is why it was used as a weapon.

    His Majesty Lord SmenkhareHis Majesty Lord Smenkhare21 time siden
  • Obsidian, volcanic glass, is hard yet brittle, I think (before watching) it'll perform better than glass due to hardness but as soon as that harness is overcome it'll give, I reckon that'll be the .45 if not then the 5.56 or 7.62 wil do it but at the same time integrity was affected by prior tests

  • Stays intact at the impact site due to the compression of the obsidian. The shockwave if the impact pripogatss outward shearing the obsidian radially outward. The reason the obsidian breaks on the exact opposite side of the sphere is due to the same laws of physics that govern the Newtons cradle to work. Conservation of momentum.

  • Because of the transfer of energy, the main impact point does take most of the hit, it transfers most of the energy. The sides absorb that energy causing it to break. There's your answer

  • Since its a spherical object I want to say it has something to do with gyroscopic precession (when a force is applied to one point the maximum force is reflected 90 degrees)

  • Centrifugal force dissipates circumstances at the weakest point. In this example, the weakest point of the sphere is the outer edges

  • so, the back of the ball cracks because the force of the bullet creates a pressure wave that travels across the ball and the conjoining at a very fast pace, which makes a tiny explosion you could call it and cracks the back of the ball.

  • Your ballistic morphology is actually kind of recreating what Asteroid Impact craters look like on the surface of our planet. High velocity projectile hits a surface and leaves a raised center with a ridged outer wall. The energy needs to be released and finds the path of least resistance. The energy finds it harder to go down (hence the raised center) and instead goes outward making conical fractures (the raised edge wall of a crater).
