Thickness of PVC pipe

Unread postAuthor: swim_scrub » Fri Dec 09, 2005 9:30 pm

Hey,

does anyone know the thickness of regular SCH 40 PVC pipe, or maybe where i could find it. Im at school right now and i dont have the tools to take an accurate measurement. I need it to analyze my mini cannon that i built.

Just trying to put some engineering and physics to good use. :)

thanks,

-Eric

Thanks alot for that link. With those numbers my calculations show that PVC should be a fairly safe material. I dont want to list the numbers that i got just incase it is wrong, but it seems that the people that made PVC have built in a fairly big factor or saftey. (But you must keep it out of extreme temperatures.)

Ill try to get some pictures of it. But it is just a basic "compressed air" gun.

You went through all that work for that? You could have just researched or asked simply, "How much pressure can PVC hold safely?"
