    This is such a good concept for a show. It takes a majorly popular pastime in this day in age (gaming) and combines it with science. Not only does it entertain but it educates. Keep up the great work MatPat!

    Game theorists you forgot one thing what is someone tampered with the rackets to make them weaker and the break we are seeing is part of the tampering that happened to the racket

    When the size of Mario is wrong, so now if he wanted to accurately calculate how deadly the ball is, he has to redo this entirely.

    my friend’s little brother is a tennis player, and their dad was helping him practice. lets just say that there was a mal-aimed tennis ball & that their dad was blind in one eye for at least 6 months.

    While the analysis of the material properties is somewhat accurate, the force is applied perpendicular and at distance away from the breaking point. This requires a different approach, taking into account the torque applied and how the tensile and compressive strengths of the material differ, as when bending is applied to a material there is two different types of strain applied across a cross section. However, as i am an engineering student, is more than any video of this nature should tackle as the different answer most likely would not change the outcome. But that's just a nit pick, a worthless you tube comments nit pick!

    Maybe it's just me but the racket looks like it breaks just where the thick part of the handle ends, thus the strength required to snap it would be a lot easier than what was calculated in the video

    Common sense tells me the math for this video is horribly wrong. A tennis ball travelling at just 1000 mph would be travelling faster than a bullet. It weighs more. Can a bullet break a tennis racket? Is it even close or can the bullet break it easily? You said yourself you'd crush atoms at 500,000 mph, so why do you need such a speed to break a tennis racket? Only a nuke can break a tennis racket? If tennis rackets were that tough, they'd make them lighter and thinner. A ball hits a tennis racket with 45kg of force at normal pro speeds. Not a cat on a racket ... 7 stone on a racket. I calculate around 300 mph is going to be enough to break the frame of your racket. Did you ever see the mythbusters shooting supersonic ping pong balls?

    You say the ball would need to go at “almost 300,000 MPH” to break the aluminium racket, yet in the screen it says >300,000. Please advise regarding which is correct, as I need it for my calculations. Thanks.

    5:56 i think that the ball goes so fats that when it breaks the racket it causes it to split into pieces ((i haven't watched the whole vid yet)) and that's why it look like it breaks where the player is holding it.

    Seeing as the handle has clean cut, wouldn't it be reasonable to assume that the rackets are two pieces that are just glued together? It would additionally make it a weak point of the whole racket, depending on the quality of the work.
