This demonstration of the Gauss gun effect uses a 660 mm long section of acrylic tube to house rare earth (neodymium) magnets and ball bearings. One end is raised slightly to allow the first ball to begin its movement and there is a rubber stopper at the other end to prevent the ball bearings from flying out. The Gauss Gun demonstrates acceleration of a body in a magnetic field and the conservation of momentum, using neodymium magnets to accelerate ball bearings. The moving components are safely enclosed in a clear plastic tube. This apparatus provides great discussion points on the nature and strength of magnetic fields, momentum, conservation of energy etc.
