Let’s say Wayne puts up a speed bubble. Generally if a bullet is shot out of the bubble it’s directional velocity will get changed. If Wayne were to have an aluminum bullet, would he be able to aim and shoot accurately without the bullet getting distorted? There is a quote from Brandon saying if there were an aluminum tube were at the edge of a bubble, then the bubble would collapse. My hypothesis for the bullet situation is that he could aim and shoot accurately, and as soon as the bullet hits the edge of the bubble, it would collapse. The bullet would be unaffected and stay on track to hit its target.
Say you have a Pulser or Slider and place them in an aluminum box with the following parameters: Thick enough to block a Seeker from detecting their allomancy Small enough to fit inside a speed bubble Would the speed bubble be able to go through the aluminum to be the maximum possible size? Would the speed bubble get absorbed somehow? Could it even be excluded, like the Meissner effect in superconductivity and magnetism? Sorry if this has been asked before, or if there is no way to know the answer. I wondering of how it could interact. P.S. for those concerned, the box is constructed so the Pulser/Slider would be just fine.
It seems the explanation for why objects get jostled as they enter and leave speed bubbles can be found from this WoB (Emphasis mine): Source The trick, it seems, is that momentum is a vector, not a scalar. This stealing of momentum has a direction to it. If an object is traveling in a different direction than the direction of the stealing, it will be jostled. Sidenote: This stealing of momentum can also explain why light coming out of the speed bubble isn't blueshifted. Since the frequency of light is related to its energy (because of weird quantum stuff), and its energy is related to its momentum (because of weird relativity stuff), stealing momentum from a photon will lower the frequency of the light.
Aluminum has been shown to have a generally neutralizing effect on Investiture, from being resistant to Pushes/Pulls to serving as a visible Coppercloud (neutralizing emotional and Bronze Allomancy) as well as having no atium shadow and wiping all a Mistborn's metals. So what would happen if you were to put something (a clock for the purpose) inside an aluminum-lined box and put up a speed bubble where the box was inside the bubble? I theorize that the clock would be immune to the time-distorting affects of the bubble. Thus, I propose that Sliders and Pulsers will very enthusiastically buy aluminum clocks to keep the right time. I realize that we are getting into wibbly-wobbly bubbly-wubbly stuff here.
