Carbon Fiber Diamond

If a car with carbon fiber construction wrecked at a high enough speed... would the "pressure" form diamonds.. Food for thought. (i know it wouldn't happen but an interesting concept.)

No, I don't think the pressure is focused or sustained enough, and you need heat to form a synthetic diamond, about 1500.

Yeah, but if you had a collision that was really close to the sun, then just maybe...

Are you in a "huff house" when you're thinking up these questions ?

It would be easier to get tuna fish salad by feeding mayonnaise to the tuna.

I dont think so. The high pressure has to come from all around to align the carbon molecules in cristal formation that create the diamond. High velocity impact may start to align molecules on the front but they will escape on the side (no pressure there) so cristal will probably not form.

Maybe in a high velocity carambolage!? ;-)

Later all
