  • thee minecraft day is sped up,so does that mean that it does actually take 4 hours to break a tree? I mean think about it Steve walks over 1 metre per second so maybe the whole word is on fast forwards

  • So your saying 4 hours 37 minutes and 14 seconds times that with the 14 as a .14 you get 35.14 and times that by 24 you get 843.36 TIMES 365 days you get 307,826.4 minutes and 4 seconds WOWW that’s a lot of minutes

  • I really like this video, however the Janka test uses a ball of standardized diameter, namely 11.28 mm. The forces that they are talking about are applying THAT force over THAT area. Pressure is Force/Area. A Janka ball has surface area 4*pi*radius^2 giving the surface area of about 200sq mm, because you are only embedding it half way. This means that if we wish to duplicate this breaking power by a bigger surface area, say a fist, then, we "wood" need to use a proportionally bigger force. This is because we are now breaking through more wood than the small janka ball broke through in the janka test. A quick google search says the human fist is about .043 sq m, or 43,000 sq mm, this shows that the surface area is now about 200 times greater than the Janka ball surface area. So for any force value on the janka table, we need to multiply it by 200 to get the force required using the surface area of a fist. This means that a janka score of say 10 lbf, would require 2000 pounds spread over a human fist area in order to match the pressure at the surface. To go deeper we need even more force yet. Short end of the story, to use the janka values as given implies that you are punching with a special glove. The glove has the property that it is essentially a janka ball surface at the tip, and it looks like a cone, so that you are punching with the pointy end. This reduces the surface area of the human fist to that of a janka ball.
