    and for charging i would have to get something to stepup the voltage to 400v right? or how would i go about that

    hey, so i was thinking of building one of these for my gr11 physics project. i saw you were using 8 40v 3300uF(<10 joules of energy) capacitors and i was wondering if it would work for me to use 4 400v 4700uF capacitors(960 joules of energy). im planning to use a bigger barrel and projectile also but if this would work for me, what would i have to modify in the circuit? would it melt the wires or be too much? and is a hollow metal barrel better or a hollow carbon fiber barrel that is thinner? and for the coil is it better to use long thin with many windings or short thicker and less windings? sorry for all the questions
