so i was just sitting here on UG when i hear a loud smash, i left it a few seconds thinking my parents heard it but they didn't so i went to investigate. our outside glasstop dining table had smashed (the glasstop) for no reason whatsoever. i just stared at it in disbelief. what can cause glass to smash out of the blue?

Also, dramatic changes in temperature.
It's that time of year where it gets really cold at night.


Also, if it was outside it could have been like a baseball, an animal, someone with a baseball bat / hammer, basically anything.
Next time, react quicker to smashing noises.

I believe it's called science.

same thing happening in 2005
Not the same table, but the same problem, I'm sure.

I think your parents where about to bang on the table but it broke


That is why they SUPPOSEDLY didn't hear it.

it is the middle of the day, there was no balls or bats or anything within 20 metres, the table is about 6 metres from where i was sitting and the only way to get in or out of the backyard would go right past me i would have seen it.

it has also been a steady 26 degree day (celcius).

shadow people is the only answer that actually seems plausible which is the saddest thing.

I used to hate those shadow people stories when I was a kid. Apparently they "enter your body" when you play outside after dark.


On topic, the big picture window smashed out of the blue once... later found out it was a bird.

change in temperature and humidity, or a small crack in your table you may not have noticed, that got to big, and caused the pressure to break the glass

The hydrogen bonds in the Sulfate atoms reacted with the gaseous Iron in the air (trees release a lot of Iron in the fall) which caused their bonds to titrate and become more malleable.

Once this happened it was only a matter of time before a nutralization reaction occured causing the glass molecules to repell each other to the point where the glass fell apart.

mol = N / 6.022x10^3

I'd be going with that- small crack in the glass, got to the point where it was too weak and it shatterd no idea, shadowpeople sounds plausible too Was it in direct sunlight?

Oh, so that's what that smell is when you walk through a boreal forest in fall?
So you're saying

this was my answer exactly.

there was probably a small crack in it that you didnt notice, then a change in temperature...CRACK.

my best guess atleast....

Wouln't it be (whatever the hell sand is) + H2SO4(aq) + Fe(g)----->FeSO4 + H2(whatever the hell sand is)?

No, that's wrong.

It would be (+ (+ (+ H3K2Fe) H2S2O4(ag2)) Fe3(g2)) -> (+ Fe3S2O4 H2)

Yes, it makes perfect sense.

(define
froBoarder
(+ (+ (+ H3K2Fe) H2S2O4(ag2)) Fe3(g2))
)

(check-expect (froBoarder (+ (+ (+ H3K2Fe) H2S2O4(ag2)) Fe3(g2))) (+ Fe3S2O4 H2))

I don't know what the fuck I'm talking about.
