Gauss Weapons – Cannon and Rifle

at 1:52 pm. Filed under Cool Gadgets, DIY Hacks, Educational

Gauss Weapons are lots of fun because there is some cool science making them work. At first glance it doesn’t look like anything special would happen with the typical Gauss Gun setup. As each magnet/ball bearing chain is reached the energy and speed increases. The effect is stunning because there is no explosives or electrical energy being used, just some normal magnets and the Gauss Gun setup is all you need. The ideal material to make your Gauss Cannon from would be a material that does not induce friction which would prevent the gun from attaining maximum speed.

    I first saw this concept 7 years ago here: http://scitoys.com/scitoys/scitoys/magnets/gauss.html

    Its still a good resource for interesting science toys to make with the kids and there’s a nice write-up of the theory too.
