Apple Cannon


Create a handgun using apples and a glass tube (potatoes will work too!).

Description of the Experiment

“Stab” the apple with both ends of the glass tube, in order to completely close it with pieces of apple.

With the glass rod, quickly push one of the pieces inwards and watch the other piece being lauched as a projectile.

Safety Information

Do not point the “cannon” directly at the public, as the apple pieces come out at a considerable speed.
