Backyard Ballistics Handbook

Second edition, 240 pages of information and plans. This bestselling guide has been expanded and updated, enabling ordinary folks to construct even more exciting ballistic devices in their garage or basement workshops than ever before. Clear instructions, diagrams, and photographs show how to build projects ranging from the simple (a match-powered rocket) to the more complex (a tabletop catapult) to the classic (the infamous potato cannon) to the offbeat (the Cincinnati fire kite). Four spectacular projects have been added to the fun arsenal: the spud-zooka, the powder keg, the electromagnetic pipe gun, and the sublimator. With a strong emphasis on safety, the book also gives tips on troubleshooting and now goes deeper into the physics behind the projects, with profiles of scientists and extraordinary experimenters such as Michael Faraday, Alfred Nobel, Henrik Lorenz, and Isaac Newton. This book will be indispensable for the legions of backyard toy-rocket launchers and fireworks fanatics who wish every day were the fourth of July.

Fire Syringe
A classic educational demonstration of the IDEAL GAS LAW
pyrotechnics, pyro technics The Fire Syringe is a classic example of the Ideal Gas Law (PV=nRT). By compressing air into a smaller volume, we are also increasing the temperature. Looking at the formula, a large increase in P, a small decrease in V, with n and R being constant, leads to a large increase in T.

Kit includes: aluminum piston, lexan piston chamber, and 2 custom made o-rings. You will also need to supply tiny pieces of non-moisturized tissue paper.

Setup: The setup is quick and easy. Pull out the syringe, drop in 3-4 tiny 5 mm or so tissue pieces. Then re-insert the aluminum piston gently so that it just enters the mouth of the piston chamber. Holding the unit flat on a non-slip surface, push down the aluminum piston with some force and speed. You will see a quick flask of fire, which will last until all available oxygen is used up.

How it works: Air gets very hot when compressed under high pressure. If you have ever pumped up a bicycle tire, you have noticed the heat generated. When the air in this fire syringe is compressed, it is done so fast and efficiently that it can reach a temperature of over 260 degrees C (500 degrees F). As paper burns at 235 degrees C (451 degrees F), the small pieces of tissue paper ignite.

Maintenance: Your syringe has been pre-lubricated and should not need any more. After each use, blow out the carbon dust from the small fire you just made and it is good to use again.
