you have to sing at the glass` natural frequency, the same sound that you get if you wet your finger and go around the rim of the glass....thanks bill nye the science guy!

For those of you who watch MythBusters, you know this is possible, though for few people WITHOUT the microphone...

"He`s here the phantom of the opera", that is the song she was moaning,Disoriented1 is one of those people who has to ruin the fun of it all, of course he is right though.

N33d I repeat u spcul8tng morons1.It`s a special magicians table used by preported `psychics` to shatter glasses.I would know.I have one.2.She did not hit a high enough note to break the glass.The song she was attempting to sing was from the broadway play The Phantom of the Opera.If she had gone one one more measure,I might have believed it more.A glass that thick would not break at that frequency,though a low frequency might do it,the volume and timber was not adequate.3.If she really HAD broken that glass with the assistance of a microphone and speaker,WHERE is the speaker?It should be placed near the glass behind a small hole which concentrates the wave pattern to the glass.4.The magicians table,known as a `top knocker` employs a thin metal rod,secured by a spring to one side of the table.The rod is attached and held by some thread.When pulled,the thread releases the rod,jumping to the other side,like a mouse trap.The rod then attches to the otha side of the table,hence,disapearing.

wats mythbusters?".

Mythbusters is a great show in the discovery channel about 2 nerdy dudes who take urban myths (i.e. breaking glass with sound) and put them ot the test. they use lotsa scientific ways to prove if a myth is plausible or if it`s busted.

Its not fake, its just that she totally cheated, and was totally late. She doesn`t deserve ANY credit. Any human can take a microphone and scream into it, then put a glass in from of the stereo.

How much you want to bet that somebody was playing a high-pitvhed frequency in the background and that`s what caused it to break.

It is possible to break crystal with your voice proven by Mythbusters but it is impossible to break the bottom of the glass.

the only thing that really bothered me about that was how off key she was... she was trying to sing the last part of the phantom of the opera, the note she was going for was supposed to be an e... that was definitely nowhere near an e.

duh, she did do it but with aid from the microphone and amplifier. On Mythbusters they showed that it was a lot easier to break with the help of a microphone and amp but it took forever for a person to reach the right frequency to break the glass.
so all you people saying that it`s fake need to get their information right. You have no proof to back up your statement.

Did you guys notice that right after she stopped singing the glass breaks. And for the glass to shatter it needs a constant freuqency and they need speekers right neear it. It is totaly a fake and it was pretty crappy and lame to.

>and it is what caused the Tacoma narrows bridge to collapse or another bridge during WWI who collapsed because the soldiers steps were matching the natural frequency of the glass<

WWI was fought in Tacoma? A beidge made out of glass? No wonder it broke.

It doesnt need to bve super high pitched, or very loud. You actualy only need to hit the resonant frequency of the glass to break it. All she had to do was get to the right frequency, and hold it straight for a while. If you waver, like most do, the resonance wont build, and the glass will not shatter.

ah...you just barely beat me to it. Same idea of what caused the Tacoma Narrows bridge to fall.

It is a popular misconception that glass breaks at really high notes. Really what does it, is those that can hold a pitch.

I thought glass can only break due to a high-pitched voice.

I don`t think that she did it mic and amp or not. I`m not saying that it was because she didn`t sing high enough, because it depends on the frequency of the glass to determine what pitch you need to sing. I just think that the tone quality she produced was crap. She didn`t stay on a single pitch long enought to make the glass shatter. Keeping a pitch dead even for a long period of time is a VERY VERY difficult thing to do. And she wasn`t doing it. So loud speakers or no, it wouldn`t have happened in this situation.

Totally possible to break glass with sound... but she did not. The glass broke because of the microphone and how they were amplifying her voice (did you see the people in the background holding their ears?) They had it turned up REALLY LOUD. Or something like that. She could not have just sang to the glass and have it break, she needed help.

if theres a slim chance something can be done than it can be done. Just look at the guiness world records. There is a very small percentage of people who can accomplish those amzing things. for those who say that those things are "impossibe" you guys can all go suck on richard simmons balls

Yep, if you strike a glass, (or circulate a wet finger along the rim) you mecanicaly ecite the glass and what your hear is its natural occilation frequence. If you externaly stimulate that occilation by producing a same frequency sound with your voice or with an amplifier, you can break the glass. This phenomenon is called resonance and it is what caused the Tacoma narrows bridge to collapse or another bridge during WWI who collapsed because the soldiers steps were matching the natural frequency of the glass.

I had a voice teacher who claimed to have shattered glasses with her voice. "You have to be located a certain distance from the glass, singing at a certain pitch and volume."

It`s all in the physics. It can be done.

By the way, the caption read "Women Shatters Glass with Amazing Voice."

It should actually be "Woman" Shatters Glass etc.

Otherwise it would have to be "Women Shatter Glass with Amazing Voices."

However, in this case, there was only on individual shattering the glass, so it has to be spelled "Woman" as opposed to "Women"

Back in 1971, Ella Fitzgerald shattered a glass during the taping of a Memorex audio tape commercial. The tape playback also shattered the wine glass.

The glass that she shattered for the commercial is now in the Smithsonian Institution`s National Museum of American History.

The phenomenon is called "Sympathetic Vibration"

it has been proven my many different experiments that it is impossible to shatter glass with a sound. the only way the thinest glass could be broken by sound is if the sound is directly against the glass. plus that fact that the ugly asian girl was singing into to a microphone. the microphone would have made chances alot less likely unless the the amp was touching the glass. and by the way, i have sen that episode of mythbusters

If it can be done, using a microphone and tweeking the pitch/frequency via an amplifier is surely cheating a bit.

1. It`s a special magicians table used by preported `psychics` to shatter glasses. I would know. I have one.
2. She did not hit a high enough note to break the glass.The song she was attempting to sing was from the broadway play The Phantom of the Opera. If she had gone one one more measure, I might have believed it more. A glass that thick would not break at that frequency, though a low frequency might do it, the volume and timber was not adequate.
3. If she really HAD broken that glass with the assistance of a microphone and speaker, WHERE is the speaker? It should be placed near the glass behind a small hole which concentrates the wave pattern to the glass.
4. The magicians table,known as a `top knocker` employs a thin metal rod, secured by a spring to one side of the table.The rod is attached and held by some thread.When pulled, the thread releases the rod,jumping to the other side,like a mouse trap. The rod then attaches to the other side of the table, hence, dissapearing
