DIY MAKE YOUR OWN CANNON
In World War I, the majority of combat fatalities were caused by artillery using the accuracy and destructive power of cannons and rifles.
Cannons were first invented in China and were among the earliest forms of gunpowder artillery. A cannon uses gunpowder to launch a projectile.
Let us build a cannon which shoots by pushing air!!
Air can push things
How does a cannon work?
DO IT YOURSELF
1) 2.5ml syringes - 2 nos
2) 10ml syringe - 1 no
3) Thick straw - 1 no
4) Transparent pipe - 1 no
5) Rubber base with slots - 1 no
Steps To Make
Remove the pieces from the main base
Remove plunger from one 2.5ml syringe
Insert the second 2.5ml syringe as shown
Connect the transparent pipe
Insert the 10ml syringe as shown and connect the other end of the pipe
Push plunger of 10ml syringe
Adjust the angle and push the 10ml syringe to shoot
Real Life Applications
A cannon is any piece of artillery that uses gunpowder or other usually explosive-based propellants to launch a projectile.
The air inside the syringe gets compressed first and then gets suddenly released to shoot the plunger.
