Why do cracks spread in glass when its heated and cooled?

    Glass has low heat transitivity, which means that it can’t handle intense heat as it passes through. Drastic temperature change (such as a blast of heat to a cracked windshield parked outside in the cold or the addition of boiling water to a frosty glass) causes the particles rapidly expand, in turn causing the brittle glass to explode.
