    The force from the bullet is so fast and powerful that when it hits it sends a big force threw the ball

    Kinetic energy blows the back off the force of the bullet transfers through the glass bending because it's a spherical surface deeper impact bigger the bend that's why the first shots on the big ball went almost straight.

    When the bullet hits the glass it makes the initial crack and the kinetic energy travels to the back and has no where to go so it makes a small crack

    It's the hardest and strongest in the middle, so when a bullet starts to go into it, it stops. Because of how much force goes through the middle across the ball, whenit leaves on the softer back it makes it shatter.

    The vibration of the impact shakes the glass and brake it when it vibrate to fast the glass will collapse and shatter a part of it. So a shockwave.

    I think this is the idea behind concepts like ceramic armor. The material fractures upon impact, and all the fragments flying away helps to massively disperse the force from the impact. The material is also super hard and causes the projectile to similarly shatter and not penetrate.

    i think the ball is made out of layers which is causing the rippling but also when the bullet hits and stops it sends a wave of energy through the one layer until it has no place to go so it breaks the glass where it stops

    I don't think I'm wrong but I think the kinetic force instantly spreads from the point of impact like a wave and meets at the back because of it's spherical shape causing the force to be pushed out so to speak cause I don't remember the term for it. If I'm wrong I'd love to be filled in because it's been years since I was interested in physics and science.

    My guess is that the impact transfers the force of thr bullet into the glass and that creates a Shockwave that tears apart the glass near the impact. That Shockwave simultaneously traveles to the rear of the sphère and the point of convergence has too much deformation in the glass which results in the fracturing in the rear. Much like extra chucks of dried spaghetti when you bend a piece to snap it in half and creates a second or third extra chunk

    i don't see an awnser to your question in the chat its energy transfer from the kenetic force of the impact from the projectia and the bigger and faster the object the more force goes into it.

  69. \Vain\DSGNS

    the back gets cracked because when the bullet hits, it distributes impact through the ball, but when the stress is too high, the back gets cracked without cracking the middle because, it already traveled there and that absorbed it, but because of it not absorbing anymore, the force distributed goes all the way to the back hence the cracks. The object is also not moving so it just takes all the impact. But thats just a theory, a gun theory.

  70. JtUbEf

    Best guess, it's transferring its energy across to the other side, and "impacts" the place where it runs out of room to transfer.

    Glass is not a solid. It's just an incredibly viscous liquid to the point where it takes centuries to deform around whatever is holding it. The bullet hits one side and the shockwave travels both around the outside of the ball and through the middle and when they meet it creates a harmonic amplification and cracks. Or magic does it.
