The gauss rifle

A Magnetic Linear Accelerator The Gauss Rifle also known as the Gaussian gun is a very simple experiment that uses a magnetic chain reaction to launch a steel marble at a target at high speed.

This educational and amusing project is very simple to build it only takes a few minutesis is very simple to understand and explain, and yet fascinating to watch and to use. The movie in the right shows a sample of the gauss rifle in action.

In the beginning, a steel ball starts rolling towards a magnet taped to a plastic rail. As soon as the rolling ball hits the magnet, another ball in the opposite side is launched and leaves the device at a very high speed.

A good Science Project The Magnetic Accelerator makes a good science project because you can easily have a question, define variables, propose a hypothesis, and run scientific experiments about it.

You can also have a results table and graph and the presentation is exciting. Everyone loves to see a stationary ball that suddenly moves at fast speed without any visible cause for that.

All instructions are available online. What are the materials? The materials are simple. We need a straight path or rail in which balls can roll easily. Any piece of wood, plastic, aluminum or brass with a groove will work. A wooden ruler that has a groove in the top is a good choice because it is easy to find around the house or at school or at a local stationery store.

Another option is using two wood dowels or rods or copper pipes placed side by side. If you are making a rail using two wood dowels, temporarily connect them to each other using clear adhesive tape, then use wood glue to glue them to each other from one side.

Use a paper towel to remove excess glue and allow the glue dry for a few hours. When the glue is dry, you can remove the adhesive tapes.

How does it do that?

Use the unglued side as the rail. We need about four strong magnets. I suggest super strong cylindrical magnets such as N Cylindrical magnets can easily sit in the grove and can easily be secured in place.

We need some sticky tape. Again, almost any kind will do. Here we use Scotch brand transparent tape, but vinyl electrical tape works just as well.

We will also need nine steel balls, with a diameter that is a close match to the diameter of the magnets. The only tool you will need is a sharp knife for trimming the tapes. If you want to trim the tapes, be careful, since the knife will be strongly attracted to the magnets.

You can save time and buy all materials in a simple kit. All kits include both the super strong magnets and matching steel balls in addition to the rail or wood dowels for making the rail.

Additional materials you will need include adhesive tape and glue. Start by taping the first magnet to the rail at the 2.

The distance is somewhat arbitrary -- we wanted to get all four magnets on a one foot rail. Feel free to experiment with the spacing later. If you are not using a ruler as the rail, then you can estimate the distances or measure them to ensure you are using the recommended distance.

It is very important that you keep the magnets from jumping together. They are made of a brittle sintered material that shatters like a ceramic.

Tape the ruler to the table temporarily, so that it doesn't jump up to the next magnet as you tape the second magnet to the ruler. Continue taping the magnets to the ruler, leaving 2.

When all four magnets are taped to the ruler, it is time to load the gauss rifle with the balls. To the right of each magnet, place two steel balls. Arrange a target to the right of the device, so the ball does not roll down the street and get lost.

To fire the gauss rifle, set a steel ball in the groove to the left of the leftmost magnet. Let the ball go.The Gauss Rifle: A Magnetic Linear Accelerator This very simple toy uses a magnetic chain reaction to launch a steel marble at a target at high speed.

The toy is very simple to build, going together in minutes, and is very simple to understand and explain, and yet fascinating to watch and to use. A coilgun or Gauss rifle is a type of projectile accelerator consisting of one or more coils used as electromagnets in the configuration of a linear motor that accelerate a ferromagnetic or conducting projectile to high velocity.

Parts of the Gauss rifle appear to be salvaged from some assault rifles: the stock is identical to the one of the G36, the grip is a recolored SG pistol grip, and the scope is a SUSAT with increased iridis-photo-restoration.comg and cartridge: Batteries, round capacity.
