A thick glass tumbler cracks when hot tea pored into it why?

Expert Answer:

When hot liquid is poured into the glass tumbler the surface of the glass which comes into the contact of the hot liquid expands rapidly whereas outer surface which is away from the hot liquid does not expand as quickly hence the thermal stress develops which cracks the glass.
