The Model Rail Gun

by: Shaun Dychko

These pages describe the model rail gun I built for the physics demonstration course, Phys 420, offered at the University of British Columbia.  It has been presented to two grade twelve classes at Lord Byng Secondary in Vancouver, and to a first year physics class at UBC.  The information in this webpage is designed to challenge physics students at the senior high school level.
