Glass does not typically "break" at any temperature. If you want to be technical, the melting point of glass is 2600-2900 °F.
Now, another important and relevant fact is that when things are hot, they grow very slightly larger due to their molecular composition. When something is very hot and is suddenly made much cooler, it will quickly shrink back to normal. When fragile things like glass are cooled down too fast, the shape change is enough to crack or break them.
Thermal Shock glass breaks due to un even surface temperature.
Yes, the glass during glass blowing can break if the worker isn't careful. Whether it breaks depends on many factors, such as temperature of the material, how thinly the glass is blown, and skill of the glass blower.
Glass isn't really a solid - it's a 'super-cooled liquid' - sudden temperature change causes 'thermal shock' where the outer surface expands or contracts quicker than the rest of the glass - causing it to break.
fix your question
Yes but glass breaks easily
NO, the maker did a very poor job, or when you moved it from the store (or wherever you got it from ) the glass probably broke. sometimes it could be temperature but I don't think that's why :o
i think that when we touch a vibrating metal rod with a glass the sound energy gets converted to mechanical energy which the particles of glass can't manage and thus glass breaks.
Temperature affects glass like it does anything else. If the temperature of glass gets high enough, it will melt. There is not a typical melting point for glass, as it depends on the composition.
When a glass breaks in a science class you should go wash your hands with soap and water because there might be chemicals in the glass because you can be infected by the chemicals that were in the glass that you broke you can get very sick.
The glass temperature transition is for glass, polymers, etc. (amorphous or semicrystalline materials), but not for leather.
Yes, because if glass is heated it breaks, if glass is not heated it doesn't break.
it means you have looked into it
Glass breaks when it is stretched, bent or distorted past its tensile flexible limit.
The glass transition temperature of silk is approx. 175 oC.
Actually, it is much faster than this. Glass breaks at the speed of sound traveling through glass, which is around 11, 000 mph.
If the ball goes all the way thru the hoop before the glass breaks then yes it counts.
Glass can shatter; it can create glass shards, uneven and jagged pieces.
ice melt in the room temperature
Mercury is poisonous.
If the temperature of the glass is high, and the environment changes from hot to cold quickly, glass will fracture catastrophically. Glass doesn't pass heat very well** (low heat transitivity) so the difference between temperature of the outer glass and the temperature of the inner glass can be very high. Since glass is brittle, when the rapid expansion of the outer glass is not matched by expansion of the inner glass, the layers of glass shear and "POW" goes the glass. ** This is why glass makes a fairly good insulator.
When it breaks, it breaks in big jagged pieces.
