I have seen a listing on e-bay in which one had a bid of $127 that ended on Sept. 19th without meeting the reserve of $140.
I dug a cannonball out of the ground ...im wondering what it is worth ?
The concept of the gauge originated with pistols, and later shotguns. The gauge described the size of the barrel by the fraction of a pound of a round iron ball that just fits the barrel. For example, a 12 guage shotgun has a barrel that will just fit a round iron ball that is one twelfth of a pound. This measurement stemmed from cannon measurements, which measured the cannon by the size of the cannon ball it fired (such as a 6 pound cannon, or 20 pound cannon). There are different gauges that describe thickness, including the American Wire Gauge that measures the thickness (diameter) of electrical wire, US Steel Wire Gauge for steel wire, Sheet Metal Gauge, etc.
A cricket ball weighs between 156 and 163 grams or about six or seven ounces. Most cannonballs weigh several pounds. Some cannon fire 20 to 30 pound balls.
A cannon ball.
the size of the cannon ball depends on the size of the cannon. civil war cannons had cannon balls about the size of a child's head, aprox 30cm across
Yes, both have the same energy, but because cannon is heavier the cannon ball gets more momentum and thus greater velocity.
up to a mile
Depends how much gunpowder you put in the cannon. a normal charge and a cannon ball can go up to 500 yards
The cannon will go to the opposite direction of the cannon ball.
The British fleet was armed for the most part by a culverin cannons. This type of cannon had a long barrel that could fire a 17 pound cannon ball.
The cannon would want to move backwards with the same speed as the ball wants to move forward.
The first cannon ball was made in the 3rd century BC in a place called Alexandra
The forces are equal. Only reasons the ball goes Flying off and the cannon stays in place, is that the cannon is so much heavier than the ball.
1.2 x 10^4 J That is in Significant Figures
the explosion of gunpowder behind it propells it out of the cannon.
In English Billiards, a cannon is a shot that hits both the red ball and the players cue ball in the same shot. This shot scores 2 points. The cannon does not exist in pocket billiards.
a cannon is the instrument use to propel a cannonball. A cannon ball is the missile which is propelled from a cannon.................
cannon ball-the one with the most weight
No one answer, since there is no one cannon ball- or cannon. If we limit this to black powder smoothbore cannon firing solid round shot, the muzzle velocity will top out at ABOUT 1000 feet per second.
Position the fulcrum so that the distance from the fulcrum to the one pound ball is twice the distance from the fulcrum to the two pound ball.
Medieval cannon balls were usually just round stones.
