    Hi in a couple of weeks i'm going have and physics project in school. I have decided to make the project about railguns. I'm going to build something similar to this: but maybe a bit larger. Since it's physics project I need do an experiment and do some calculations. This is where you come in I was hoping that you help with which theory and experiment i should use. I'm on my last year of something similar to High School.

    Personalty i'm thinking that something this could be my theory:

    Lorentz force
    Something about plasma

    I excuse for my rusty English, I hope you understand me.:biggrin:
