Think if they froze the paintballs it would work? I remember Mike's vid on how frozen paintballs become incredibly brittle

what did you assume the acceleration of the paintball to be? a constant speed would skew what you got for your force since the paintball is decelerating while it is traveling, so i dont know where this .32004N from.



300FPS was the constant speed. I didn't calculate gravity or angle of fire, hence being in a vacuum. So basically it is a hand-infront-of-barrel scenario. I could set up an equation that you could plug in the other variables of a real life situation but I need to be going to bed soon.

Good stuff. but should be moved to Punkworks. And thanks for putting how much the ball weighs.

I thought the bolded part was funny. Can I quote you on it?



Sure lol

When people argue that frozen paintballs actually hurt and when people think the gear I wear is used to make the shots less painfull, I guess they've never heard of bounces or team jerseys. Also when a kids try to argue their spyders or tippmans can beat me, I just laugh. Frozen paintballs is the worst I hear though I want to rip out their fuckin eyes.
