Why does hot glass crack when placed under hot water?

Hot glass is less likely to crack than cold glass. It's down to the temperature difference. If the glass is colder than the water, its outside heats up, and expands. Glass is a poor conductor of heat so the inside doesn't get hot and expand nearly as quickly. This sets up strains in the glass, and because it's brittle, it cracks. .Hot glass may still have a sufficiently different temperature from the water to cause the same effect
