AP Physics Hack #2

Final Project Proposal

For my project I will be attempting to create a coil launcher using disposable camera flashes. 

Materials Needed: copper wire, 4 disposable cameras (with their flashes detached), glass tube, 2.5 mm nail, 4 1.5 V batteries, and holders for the glass and the batteries

Concepts Demonstrated: Powering tools using electric forces and using a parallel circuit to facilitate charge

Basically this is something a lot of people build on the internet to different extents where they set the flashes from disposable cameras and set them in series with an alternate power source which creates a way to shoot things. I will be doing this at a very small scale and trying to shoot a small nail (which according to the internet can go up to 25 m/s).
