There are many Hollywood movies which show a hero or villian running, jumping, or riding a motorcycle through big plate glass windows without apparent injury. Why is this an incredible violation of Newton's laws?
i can't think of really anything that makes sense...
Well I think it has to do with newton's third law of motion the glass would also exert a force on you so you should feel the force you exerted on the glass. That should be a pretty good amount of force considering you broke through it. It's the same concept as when you kick a ball, it hurts the harder you kick because that force is pushing back from the ball to your foot. Sorry if this isn't right.
