Hi everyone, I am new to this forum. I am a high school student but I am extremely interested in science and I like to call myself a "junior physicist". even though I am not nearly as smart as a real one. But I suppose I am working my way up there. I am hoping to go to college and get a degree in Physics engineering if that is possible. As I have a huge passion for both subjects. Me and a friend are starting a new research project hosted by the school science club.For now it is just us working on the project. We are going to do research on high velocity projectiles with small masses. We are attempting to get a small projectile(literally tiny) at speeds faster than sound. Will be testing impact phenomena on different substances. Hoping to get something interesting out of it. To get the projectile at this velocity we are probably going to use something along the lines of a small light gas gun. We do not need the projectile to get to mach 7 like the real ones but we think it is doable to break the sound barrier. Overall does it sound interesting or completely boring and a waste of time? I think it would be neat to test the different shock waves on substances like water and metals. And who knows, this is physics so I am sure we will get something out of it that we would have never predicted.
