    Step aside bob omb. Keep on flying Bullet Bill. There is a new weapon causing damage in the mushroom kingdom, and this one is fuzzy, round, and squishy. One of Mario Tennis Aces coolest features is allowing you to break a players racket. But just how fast would you have to hit the ball in order to do so? And what other consequences would arise from that much force? Well that is what we're about to find out.

    The smallest of small nitpicks I must do dear sir, at 10:40 you let slip "cubic" cm when in reality it must be "square" cm (as denoted accurately on screen). This is not an attempt to appear superior, but a compliment. I have been binge watching game theories to stave off exam stress for the past week (going as far as to have it on while I sleep) and this is the ONE mistake I have noticed. Also plees notice me.

    Alternative Theory Idea: What might the rackets need to be made out in order to accomplish the same feat of breaking the racket *YET* strong enough to manage the 65k ball-shot itself without breaking or harming the user's own racket initially used to tether the ball toward the opponent in the first place? In other words, rather than questioning the force needed to break a real-life equivalent racket aloe, what would the racket need to be composed of in order to break (the way it does) under 65k *YET* remain usable in general play...?

    Would like to point out that what happens to real tennis-rackets (assuming they snap near the handle) is not a shear type faliure. It's from the bending load (if you move the force to the "breaking point" you also need to add a torque to make them equal. This torque also puts stress on the material). Why am i so sure? In mechanical engineering most will just straight up IGNORE the shear load on members (not pins though; only members, axels, etc.). Why do they do it? Because in an overwhelming majority of cases you get a bigger error by setting Pi as 3.14, than by ignoring shear stress entirely (don't worry, they overspec everything to account for these errors, degradation and unexpected loads).
    Also, the distribution of shear stress is not constant over a cross section (then again this doesn't really matter because you could get a pretty accurate result by only calculating bending and torsion (maybe that's why they break).
