A rail gun is also known as a linear magnetic accelerator. It uses the electromagnetic field to propel projectiles at high speeds. In the experiment devised several different variables were tested and results were recorded for each. The rail gun constructed produced semi consistent results. The hypothesis was disproved however it was found that the approach to experimentation could be modified to produce favourable results.
