Spark Question

Unread postAuthor: r0n » Mon Jan 23, 2006 8:39 am

I am almost finished building my first combustion cannon. But i have a question. Multiple sparks... how well do they work ? should i put dual sparks in my chamber ? or just leave it as one?

EXPERIMENT-Ben Franklin didn't get shocked on his 1st flying of the kite, it's also depending on fuel mixture/kind of fuel, how many volts are beeing delivered to the contact points/pin/screw tips in the chamber

TECKNO TIP: there will be a voltage drop due to extra connections/long wires/battery capacity

TECKNO TIP: for more battery capacity, run multiable batteries in parrell- +to+to+,-to-to-

moddified stun guns seem to be really good, post a pic of it (the cannon)

The twin spark makes the fuel burn faster.Like in alfa romeo.

if you use two sparks the fuel will burn faster but the sparks will have less power but the dual sparks should work well but if you really want a good spark you should go with the stun gun although if you live in australia its hard to get your hands on one.
