Can you put a link to your source on the strength of glass? Mar 5 revised How to calculate the number of glass sheets that will be broken by a falling object? added 1 characters in body Mar 4 awarded Nice Question Mar 3 comment How to calculate the number of glass sheets that will be broken by a falling object? @jimmytadams, case A is with glass that weights half of the glass in the test case. This is a very crucial difference. The density of the glass is reduced by half.

Mar 2 comment How to calculate the number of glass sheets that will be broken by a falling object? @Bernhard, I realize that the energy of the object when hitting the 1st glass is mgh, and that the energy after the impact will be the energy before minus the energy needed to break the glass. Between two consecutive impacts Energy will be added equal to (m_object+m_glass)g*h_betweensheets, but I don't know how to calculate the energy that is needed to break the glass.
