Action Science and Fun Project Possible From HHO Gas
AMAZING1.COM has done it again!
We have designed and built a device capable of firing a 50mm projectile over 500 meters using ordinary tap water. The howitzer section is built from materials available from hardware stores. The design as shown was done by one of our more creative technicians and could be a museum piece. The howitzer has many extras as seen from photos including a laser sight. The design of the actual barrel, chamber and firing mechanism must be followed, but that of the remaining assembly can be at the builder's discretion. Plans include photos, schematics, and drawings to complete this fascinating and fun project. Materials for the cell (to generate hydrogen) and actual howitzer are readily available. However you may individually purchase them precut and ready to use from our facilities. They are listed with pricing on the parts list of the downloadable HHOHOW1 plans.
|These are paper plans, requiring parts and assembly (also available as downloadable plans for roughly half the price).|
Now at last the ultimate all action science project using only “harmless” water for the energy source!
This project can be dangerous and is intended to be supervised by qualified school, university or adult personnel. The blast effects can cause damage and injury.
Unfortunately we have no control on the amounts of the gases used, on the blast containers, nor can we enforce our safety recommendations. We therefore can only warn the experimenter to use the small amounts as shown in plastic baggies, and treat the kinetic devices with the respect you would give real weapons. The experimenter must also be aware of the fact that this is the most efficient form of released chemical energy per given weight of any explosive or fuel. Hydrogen when mixed with oxygen must be treated with the precautions of an explosive -- it is a highly potent form of energy and must be handled with caution at all times.
