how to calculate the number of turns for a coilgun....wats the formula...and how to decide on it..? Answered



Depends on the parameters of the coil gun-what kind of projectile, amps of the power source, discharge rate of the capacitors, how much heat you need to get rid of inside the coil...

If you can't model it with math, you get to determine everything experimentally : ) Wind, install, test, compare to previous attempts, repeat...
