is PET plastic able to be cracked or broken? If so, how?

I have a bottle of medication made of PET plastic that I dropped onto a tile floor, and it cracked. I thought PET is more robust and would take much more to break or crack it.

PET plastic is supposed to be a durable material, but it can be cracked or broken, just like any other type of plastic. Plastic water bottles are made from PET plastic, and they are extremely durable, but also flexible. The reason your medicine bottle broke when dropped it is likely because it is made of a more rigid type of PET plastic that can break easier when dropped.
