A Velocity of a turkey

Tags:
  1. May 5, 2016 #1
    I watched a video where someone as a joke put a car airbag under a thanks giving turkey. When he set off the airbag, it went at such a velocity that it hit the ceiling of the room. After they looked at the table, (seen here at 5:49) the airbag went off with such a force that it broke the table. My question is, how much force did the airbag apply on the table? To fill in a few of the variables, lets just say it is a 15 lbs turkey. Another variable is that if someone can find the info, the car was shown in the video as well that I linked.

    Is the issue the fact that you can't get the info of how strong the airbag is when it goes off? I have the same issue and can not get the info my self.
