Can you shatter glass with your voice?

One of the questions that I hear most often is “Can you break glass with your voice?” So this week I decided to do a little research about this. The answer is yes and no. According to Physlink.com, no you cannot shatter regular glass with your voice. You can shatter a crystal glass with your voice. This is because crystal vibrates all at one harmonic frequency. In order to break a crystal glass, you need to be able to do two things. First, you need to be able to reach the frequency that causes the glass to resonate. Second, you need to be able to produce enough volume that the glass is not able to withstand the vibrations and shatters.
