I am doing a little calculation thing for fun, and I need this information before I can start. If it helps, I need to know how much force can break glass of different densities and dimensions.

It depends on what glass

Well, it all really depends on the starting position of what breaks the material, so it varies.

Okay so the explosion of gunpowder in a cannon.

Given you know your density (p) p=M/V and f=ma, etc this isnt something you can or wanna calculate, what angle? dimension? Useless knowledge unless you wanna waste your life with higher academics.
Answer; Be less of a smart alec? :P
