Diamond=Metal, 1 gram=15grams. I just woke up and I already think this may be enough internet for today.
@Talkative Mime, you and me both kid... you and me both
@Talkative Mime, but steel is hevier then feathers
That's not how this works, that's not how any of this works
@SyntaxError, no more robbing banks. Rob the police station instead.
@SyntaxError, I unfriend you!
@Square Feet, blue streak?
"But steel is heavier than feathers"
@Egalinsky88, if you have a lb of steel and a lb of feathers you need to take into account the weight of what you did to all those birds.
@Egalinsky88, "I don't get it"
@Egalinsky88, BEAT ME TO IT
it's too expensive. Y'know, back in my day, you could buy a quarter for a Nickle!
Okay skipping al the stupid stuff the reason they dont make bullet proof vests etc out of diamond is because its really brittle if you were to hit a daimond with a hammer it would shatter for this reason too
@dewidoom, as someone who studies and makes body armour, it always annoys me so much when people think that harder means stronger
@Vesrox, as a military tacticool geek I love learned about different body armors and the ways they disperse the energy. I'm curious as to how effective a non newtonian fluid filled body suit would be. Like 2 cm of temperature regulating shock absorbing fluid.
@ Tobias Widower, well we don't generally make ballistic armour at the place I work, but I do have an interest in it. I've heard of armours being tested with that use non-newtonian fluid, but I couldn't give you a definitive answer as to how effective they are as I've never read published results of tests. A problem I can think of though is that when it gets hit, the projectile that hit the armour could break a small whole in whatever the liquid is encased in causing the liquid to leak out and making the armour useless after one hit. Also 2cm is really thick for body armour, you don't want armour to be too cumbersome. Call me old fashioned, but I think that currently the best material for body armour is hardened and tempered steel.
@Vesrox, I had heard something about some kind of shellfish shell being tested for use in body armor due to the strength of the shell, I'd like to see how that turns out. But I agree with you on the steel armor
@dewidoom, isn't diamond more effective as something to tip weapons and tools with?
@Toxia, I heard of that as well, I think it was Abolone shell. I could not really tell you anything at all about Abalone or how strong their shells are, but who knows, that could turn out well.
@Sybil Reisz, it's been effective on saw blades and sharpening stones. Don't think it would be good on much else though
@Toxia, don't forget drill bits
@Sybil Reisz, diamond is hard by scratch test. You can cut through concrete and metal easily because diamonds are the hardest material. But you will loose the diamond tip after awhile because diamond is brittle
@Optical Nudist, I suppose that makes sense. After all, diamond is basically just carbon glass.
@Sybil Reisz, pure diamond is a specially arrange carbon order.
@Optical Nudist, oh, I know that. I just meant that it has similar properties and forms under similar conditions, though it definitely takes much more heat and pressure to make diamonds than it does to make glass.
Also diamonds are not metals, they are organic.
@Prince super Vegeta , diamonds are compressed carbon.
@Doctor Krieger, didn't I just say that
@Prince super Vegeta , organic things are, for the most part, made of carbon.
Carbon itself isn't organic.
@Doctor Krieger, but the diamond is
@Prince super Vegeta , no, diamonds are not organic. They're crystalline minerals and can be made synthetically.
@Doctor Krieger, from my knowledge of crystalline structures used for transistors from electrical classes, as well as organic chemistry classes I can tell you that they are considered organic. The definition of organic is containing carbon. Now diamonds are basically just chains of carbon atoms with complete sets of bonds. And they can be impure if they contain traces of other elements, however they are still considered organic even if they are "non-living", but even if they are impure they are still organic in the same way the bodies and structures of earth based life is organic yet has other elements still present in them. I didn't mean to come off as arrogant or pushy, I'm just... Saiyan. Ya ignorant fvck.
I just love the accuracy of this. Someone has been playing too much Minecraft.
"What's heavier? A pound of feathers? Or a pound of stone?"
@YouThisReadWrong, easy! The feathers are heavier because you have to carry the weight of what you did to those birds.
Those Minecraft guys must be some kinda bodybuilder then
1g = 15g
Oh yeah, also the diamonds are rare and expensive to get, and they can break easily into pieces if cut straight due to the structure of the atoms in the diamond.
Watch game theory they literally have an episode based off this question but before for those too lazy it's far too heavy and expensive and since diamonds cut easily into cubes it would make terrible armor
Why does time fly when you're lookin at this kind of stuff. I mean I went to be at 11:03 and now it's freakin 12:31 holy shiet
Nothing is heavier than 1 gram of feathers.
I don't want to live on this planet anymore
If people could go to hell just for being stupid...
