## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hey people, first post, I'm sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong place.

How do you calculate the force exerted on a sphere? I'm building a pneumatic air rifle, and I'm trying to figure out how fast an airsoft bb accellerates with a certain pressure.

The projectile is 6mm in diameter, so that makes the surface on which the air pressure works 1/2 * (4 * pi * 3^2) = 1/2 * 113.1 = 56.5 mm^2 = 5.65 * 10^ -5 m^2.

What is the force on the projectile if the difference in pressure is 1 bar?
