How much Joule does a coilgun need? Answered
So I always wanted a coilgun but in germany there arent any stores that give away used cameras with flash for free because they all send them away whole to a factory for development. I recently bought a pack of random capacitors for 2,50€ and now im asking myself if the capacitors in it are enough. There are many different caps in it but the biggest are : one 63V 1000µF and six 100V 100µF.
The single big one has a power of 1.985 J and the six small ones a power of 3 J together.
I dont want a gun to kill people but i still want it to shoot and penetrate paper and stuff like that.
So how much Joule do i need for the gun to work properly
