  1. Oct 8, 2005 #1
    Any ideas for a simply projectile launcher? I have to build one for a physics lab. The only goal is distance.

    Are you doing this outside or in a classroom? Makes a big difference.

    Outside. I was looking at this but the diagrams and details are sketchy. Could anybody tell me the best materials for such a railgun (within reason)?
