Thanks to World of Warships for sponsoring this video and enabling us to build this epic electromagnetic coilgun!
Last time they helped us build an electromagnetic railgun -- now we're making an even more complicated one -- using coilgun principles! Plus, might as well test it against Thanos.

  • There doesn't seem to be any recoil or kickback while firing the gun. Does this mean that guns utilising magnetic propulsion of the bullet could be used in a zero gravity situation, such as space?

    Aditya LewisAditya Lewisวันที่ผ่านมา
  • just wondering but when you programmed it did you account for the projectile's acceleration. As the projectile goes do the barrel it gains speed, so the last coil should turn on and off much quicker than the last one. If you did not then the projectile will be slowed down by the second or third coil. also if you got the round to spin long ways it would gyroscopic stabilise to round and you would not get it turning on its side

  • All of the written material I've ever read claims multiple stages are more powerful, but all of the videos I've ever watched show that single stage is more powerful. I think you should figure out how to pump all of that juice into a single coil with stronger components and thicker wiring for the same .50 cal projectile.

    • Bro. That's called a rail gun.

      the Hacksmiththe Hacksmith3 วันที่ผ่านมา
  • When the projectile passes the center of the coil, you should reverse the current, so the coil pushes instead of pulling. This should double the kinetic energy.

    Martin PedersenMartin Pedersen4 วันที่ผ่านมา

      the Hacksmiththe Hacksmith4 วันที่ผ่านมา
  • Maybe I didn't hear right so don't bash me but here are some ideas: Since the velocity is increasing with each coil instead of just transferring the power onto the next coil after the previous one is deactivated, is it possible to decrease the duration of power input on each coil and increase the the power as the projectile passes each coil? You'd still possibly use the same amount of power but spaced differently time wise. Because what I saw was that the velocity was slightly increased but mostly constant throughout the gun. Maybe make the projectile more aerodynamic or just use defused steel round (idk if I said that right). Give the projectile a launching start. Let me know if that helped or if it was completely useless Wha

    Alviez ChaganAlviez Chagan4 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • Not sure how you could tell if the projectile was a constant speed through the gun...? During the tuning process we went from 20ft/s to 100ft/s so it did accelerate more through each coil -- as the point of a coil gun =)

      the Hacksmiththe Hacksmith4 วันที่ผ่านมา
