12/8: Banana getting shot



Well I had another high-speed photo, and this one's better than the tennis ball.

Neat picture. But whoever is taking these has a large amount of free time on their hands.



Joe  Saturday Dec 8 08:31 PM

yep

And a large amount of banana to clean up.

I think the best "bullet getting shot into something" image I ever saw was the one where it was a bullet coming straight at you. You could see the gun in the background, as well as the smoke filled with sparks.

They shot into a mirror so the camera would survive.

Yeah ... and that 'free time' is called 'reasearch'....... :-)

Not to mention bananas.

THe bullet comes out at an odd angle on the lime one (on the site), wonder why? Resident firearms owners shed any light on this? Wouldn't have thought there was anything that hard in a lime..

Being that the bullet had successfully obliterated the lime, it was doing a celebratory cartwheel.

P.S. - when you're used to 1600x1200, 1024x768 on your friend's computer really really sucks.

I think it's keyholing. That is, it's rotating but not about it's own axis anymore. It'll take more limes to figure out exactly what makes it do that, but it doesn't take nearly as much to cause that as it does to deflect it. For instance, if you slow a bullet's spin down enough and it will do that, so friction with the inside of the lime might have been enough.
