Why don't they make bulletproof vests out of diamond if it is the hardest metal?
>>
>>722949949
One of my favorite threads of all times.
>>
>>722949949
As liquid, gas or solid?
>>
>>722949949
Becuz diamond is gai
>>
This question hurts me as a gemologist
>>
>>722949949
Because soldiers are cheap and even synthetic diamond is expensive to make into a suit.

Might as well put every man in a mini tank for that cost.
>>
>>722949949
Because they are hard, not tough. High scratch resistance but easy to brittle or break.
>>
Because then they'd just make bullets out of diamonds and everyone knows that the only thing that can cut through a diamond is reply to this post or your mother will die in her sleep

>>722950221
/thread. Does zicronium count?
>>
>>722950221
If soldiers are so cheap why don't they make bulletproof vests out of more soldiers?
>>
>>722950371
Damn didn't think of that.

Because that would require shrink ray technology so that all the soldiers could latch on to the vest and shoot down bullets/missiles with even smaller missiles/bullets before they reached the vest. The ultimate defense.
>>
>>722950545
Or just give the contract to Buffalo Bill.
>>
>>722950253
And it's not even a metal... When it is obviously this stupid, it is usually not meant to be taken seriously.
>>
>>722949949
Its actually brittle.

>source: presstube channel on youtube. They crushed one fairly easy. A stack of CD's put up more of a fight.

because it's too heavy, 1 gram of diamonds weighs something like 15 grams
>>
>>722949949
Hardness != toughness
toughness is what you want in a bulletproof vest
>>
>>722949949
>Why don't they make bulletproof vests out of diamond if it is the hardest metal?
because its also the most expensive medal
>>
>>722952847
>1 gram weighs 15 grams
nigga what?
>>
>>722949949
Heeeeee
>>
>>722953164
Because it's so condensed, it's like 15 times more condensed than a gram so 1 gran would be 15 grams

Due to extensive research done by the University of Pittsburgh, diamond has been confirmed as the hardest metal known to man. The research is as follows:
Pocket-protected scientists built a wall made of iron and crashed a diamond car into it at 400 miles per hour, and the car was unharmed. They then built a wall out of diamond and crashed a car made of iron moving at 400 miles an hour into the wall, and the wall came out fine. They then crashed a diamond car made of 400 miles per hour into a wall, and there were no survivors. They crashed 400 miles per hour into a diamond travelling at iron car. Western New York was powerless for hours. They rammed a wall made of metal into 400 miles an hour made of diamond, and the resulting explosion shifted earths orbit 400 million miles away from the sun, saving the earth from a meteor the size of a small Washington suburb that was hurtling towards mid-western Prussia at 400 billion miles an hour. They shot a diamond made of iron at a car moving at 400 walls per hour, and as a result caused over 10000 wayward planes to lose track of their bearings, and make a fatal crash with over 10000 buildings in downtown New York. They spun 400 miles at diamond into iron per wall. The results were inconclusive. Finally, they placed 400 diamonds per hour in front of a car made of wall travelling at miles per iron, and the result proved with out a doubt that diamonds were the hardest metal of all time, if not just the hardest metal known to man.

1 gram is 1 gram
the only thing here that's dense is you
>>
>>722953372
not with diamonds because it's more condensed, are you thick in the brain?
>>
>>722953372
Are your stupid anon? 1 gram of diamond weighs like 15 grams because of how compact and hard it is.
>>
>>722949949
Because while it's hard, the material bulletproof vests are made out of need to also be flexible in order to absorb the impact of the bullet. Otherwise, while the bullet won't penetrate your skin, you be bet you'll feel every bit of that bullet smacking against your chest.
>>
>>722953426
what's heavier: 1 pound of steel or 1 pound of feathers?
>>
>>722953426
Lmfao you've got to be trolling, no one is that stupid.

Density just means there's more mass per volume. 1 gram is 1 gram you fucking moron.

Because the particles don't move the matrix can shatter upon impact. Hardest doesn't equal most bullet proof. It makes for a great drill and a really crappy shield.
>>
>>722953575
They're both the same
>>
>>722953324
It all make's sence if you just don't think about it.jpg
>>
>>722953609
Yes so diamonds have more mass per volume meaning, something like 15 x more
>>
>>722953653
so how the fuck would one gram of diamond weigh 15 grams?
>>
>>722953575
>>722953609
Okay. Go and obtain 1 cubic gram of diamond, and weight it against 1 cubic gram of steel. The diamond always weighs 15 times more.
>>
>>722953763
Because it's more condensed fuck head
>>
>>722953722
volume * density = mass
>>
>>722949949
Diamonds are only scratch resistant.

>They can be easily smashed with a hammer.
>>
>>722953802
what the fuck is a cubic gram?
go back to your shitty imperial measurements amerifat
>>
>>722953722
None of this matters. It would shatter on impact. It's not sapphire glass. Also when they use sapphire glass for bullet proof applications it's only half of the equation. The other half is a soft material to catch the bullet. Hard doesn't mean stops a bullet.

Original, hand-crafted copypasta; The perfect present for a wedding, christening, new baby, birthday, anniversary, retirement, mother’s day, thank you, school reunion - any occasion you can think of!

>heat diamonds to molten
>add molten rubber of similar density
Perfect alloy is formed having then best of both. Problem solved.
