Magnetic linear accelerator also known as the Gauss Rifle uses a magnetic chain reaction to launch a steel ball at high speed.
This is a very simple project to build, it takes only a few minutes to put together. It is simple to understand and explain, and fascinating to watch and use.
The standard kit contains 4 super strong magnets (Part# N35.500.500), 10 Steel ½" Balls (Part# SBALL) and 2 wood dowels used to construct the rails.

Great Gauss accelerator kit - the two wooden sticks provide a good rail, and the magnets and balls are good quality and the perfect size. Students tremendously enjoyed this
What can I say; this item did exactly what it was supposed to do. I haven't had enough time yet to get a lot of time playing with it, but, so far, it was worth the money!!
