Spider Man Web Slingers Idea Answered
this is the first idea that I have worked up the courage to post and I would like some help getting my ducks in a row.
I don't have anything written down yet so here is a verbal breakdown of its function:
A retractable tape measure mechanism is attached to a length of cord.
This mechanism is, in turn, placed in a sealed chamber with a barrel wide enough to
accommodate smooth movement of the cord.
The free end of the chord is attached to a dart/wadding that is used to block the chamber from
Pressurized CO2 or equivalent gas is pumped into the chamber using a pressure nozzle with a emergency release valve.
CO2 is pumped into the chamber, dart/wadding is fired, dart/wadding and cord pass through the barrel till loss of velocity or reaching
the end of the chord, the mechanism pulls the cord and dart/wadding back to start and the process repeats.
this is just an idea and I would like some help getting it functional, and an equation for thrust vs drag would be nice :D
