    • idea: when your trying to stop a bullet, usually bullet proof glass does a good job, the bullet spents a lot of its energy on breaking the glass before getting through, its stopped before then, so just replace the glass with say a hard leather over the baseball mitt, and maybe that might stop the ball

  • On the fire...It's good plain old friction like rubbing two sticks together (they being made of the same material) but imagine them not being rubbed together for 20 minutes at speed 1, but 20 microseconds at speed 10,000.

  • To estimate the number of gloves the ball would travel through: Could you have measured the velocity of the ball before and after passing through each type of glove then calculate the amount of force that is dissipated as it passed through each? You could assume a glove will stop a ball traveling at 100mph (& add a factor of safety of course) to determine the force each glove is capable of stopping. Assuming the ball doesn’t tear itself apart you could then calculate how many gloves it would take, correct? BTW I guessed 7 and would be curious to know how many gloves it would actually take.

  • Try to stack the gloves. While separated the mass of each glove is singled out. Perhaps if the gloves are placed against one another the mass meeting the ball will cause more stopping power to slow the ball. Similar to an arrow passing through a target that is singled out compared to an arrow trying to pass through several targets mashed together. I hope to see this tested.
