1. Any of a large class of materials with highly variable mechanical and optical properties that solidify from the molten state without crystallization, are typically made by silicates fusing with boric oxide, aluminum oxide, or phosphorus pentoxide, are generally hard, brittle, and transparent or translucent, and are considered to be supercooled liquids rather than true solids.
2. Something usually made of glass, especially:
1. A drinking vessel.
2. A mirror.
3. A barometer.
4. A window or windowpane.
3.
1. glasses A pair of lenses mounted in a light frame, used to correct faulty vision or protect the eyes.

Glass is a uniform material of arguable phase (where the word "phase" is used to describe either a gas, liquid, or solid), usually produced when the viscous molten material cools very rapidly to below its glass transition temperature, without sufficient time for a regular crystal lattice to form. The most familiar form of glass is the silica-based material used for household objects such as light bulbs and windows. Glass is a biologically inactive material that can be formed into smooth and impervious surfaces. Under tension, glass is brittle and will break into sharp shards. Under compression, pure glass can withstand a great amount of force. The properties of glass can be modified or changed with the addition of other compounds or heat treatment.

Most glasses contains about 7072 % by weight of silicon dioxide (SiO2). The most common form of glass is soda-lime glass, which contains nearly 30 % sodium and calcium oxides or carbonates. Pyrex is borosilicate glass containing about 10 ...more
