Volume Calculation

Unread postAuthor: Sonicboom101 » Tue Feb 15, 2011 1:44 pm

Hello. I've recently built myself a new cannon. This cannon has a smaller chamber and is more compact. I'm going with the syringe method of fueling the chamber. I know how the method works, however I don't know how to calculate the chamber volume in ML. My chamber splits from a Tee in the middle. Look in the attached image to see what I mean. Is there some kind of calculator or formula I can use to figure this out? And yes I have looked on the Wiki.

Any easier method? The barrel is already glued together and so is the chamber, and is dry. If there is no other method how would I go about this?

Every inch of 1" pipe is 13mL, every inch of 1.5" pipe is 29mL

Aaaa. I see thank you. So sense the chamber splits into the handle would I just add up those inches from where it splits?

Yes, the result will be an approximation but in practice it won't affect your performance.
