Electromagnetic railgun

  1. May 14, 2005 #1
    I have decided to make an electromagnetic rail gun,in such a way that three of them are ligned with each other and connected centrally,my problem is that how do I make them rotate at a fixed speed.

    I would think you would need some kind of slip ring device that would allow the three to rotate while still having electrical connections in tact.
