quick question

Unread postAuthor: smoch125 » Mon Nov 07, 2005 7:08 pm

my friend recently made a spud gun (after i showed him mine) and his dimensions are a four in chamber (about 13 in long) and a 2 in barrel that is aproximately 2ft 6in. mine is a 3in chamber (13in long) and an 1 1/2 barrell (4ft long). After testing his, he told me that it fires better thatn mine! Im not really sure how this would work better, so if anyone has any thoughts on the dilema, please reply.

hmm...
3<sup>2</sup> *13
4<sup>2</sup> *13

So, he has a 75% higher volumed chamber.

1.5<sup>2</sup> *48
2<sup>2</sup> *30

And a 20% higher volumed barrel.

Now, this is going to lead to 2 things: his will be louder (higher volume ratio, and bigger), and he'll have a (30-40%?) higher muzzle energy.
...so, yeah, his preformance is better.
