The physics of breaking things.

blog-0300029001397157874.jpgEver get so mad that you just want to hit something really hard, and you do, and it breaks? Well here's why it breaks! (hope this doesn't make you too angry). When you hit something, you're transferring the mechanical energy of that object to the object that you are striking. Now if the force is hefty enough (force = mass x acceleration), it will cause the weakest point in that object to give way and break... like that hole in your wall.
