how much rock will my 55 gallon hold.Or how much would the weight will the bottom pane of glass hold?
A hallmark of tempered glass.my dad just built his first skyscraper. i was there one day, and he took a 3lb hammer and threw it as hard as possible at a pane of glass. it did not even leave a mark. however he just taped it on edge and the hole thing shattered. so i guess it just how glass is.
This is very true. When I did all those calcs before, it was just to show overall strength. It was for a static system. It all basically comes down to force-time (shock), and force-area relations (pressure).About 8 years ago, my brother attempted to catch a closing door on my old '79 280ZX by the glass window and it shattered in his hand (the Z did not have the metal rim around the window, a nice feature up til that point). Still glass is dependent on a lot a factors before the fail point is reach.... mostly it is not shock resistant but can hold a lot of weight for as long as it does not shift quickly into it.
