I can think of no way to push (repel) an unmagnetized slug. I think that any improvements would have to involve more pulling (magnetic attraction) unless you change the projectile to a powerful permanent magnet.Nostrafus said:Well Also it could be improved by using 2 pulses, one in front, then one about a second later to create a pulse that pushes the round, because the current design seems to pull the round which may be the reason it's slow, if they could get the round traveling down the barrel, then create another pulse behind it, or more than one so there is a constant push behind the round, it may improve the velocity.
E=MC^2 Please show your working.... :roll:Nostrafus said:I don't mean repel a slug, I mean keeping a pulse behind the slug, so it's pushing it away from the magnet.
Repel means "to push away". You can't push a slug of ferrous material away from a magnet unless the slug itself is magnetized.Nostrafus said:I don't mean repel a slug, I mean keeping a pulse behind the slug, so it's pushing it away from the magnet.
Can you provide a reference for this statement?Nostrafus said:Science has proved that pushing is more productive when trying to move an object than pulling an object.
