Wow that was an extremely vague question.

You could do distances with power and angles.

Most schools won't allow you to build one.

I meant it to be vague, any interesting project fit for a freshmen. and people have done things with rifles before, so let me worry about the legalities.

I am doing this for my grade 11 math project and it involves trajectory and force of impact with two types of ammo.

where are you going to get tank armor and how are you going to get explosive charges?how will you build a shake charge without blowing yourself up?and how are you going to make explosive armor?(armor that when hit blows up or something and stops the charge from penatrating the tank.)

I would not do something that stresses the destructive forces of potato cannons.

Last year, for my freshman project, I used my dual supah-valve+ cannon. Sure it has loads of power, and sure it impressed them. But I did not make that the focus of the project. From my experience, teachers are more likely to give a good grade to a well-thought out project (mine was about weighted VS unweighted tennis ball distances) than one that just shows them how far you can launch something.

I have also noticed teachers are less willing to give out good grades to "dangerous" students than they are to "creative" students

So in other words, don't show them something that can penetrate tank armor; show them something that involves a physics and math (AND can penetrate tank armor :wink: )

ya of course, I'm not gonna show off the cannon, I'm just useing it to have the same force each time. it'll be about the benifits of armor deforming, flexing, hardened ect, not the cannon. the cannon will just make the project more enjoyable for me.

hmm freshman...freshman should be doing physical science right now. well that deals with atoms, phases of matter, ect. if you make a penu there is ALOT you could do. Combustions just too dangerous for a school kinda thing. (if you do choose a penu call it a T-shirt launcher not a cannon, like the kind at hockey games, that makes it seem safer lol..)
