Here's a shitty design for an oil powered gun

I've seen dudes here in canada make worse. Like seeing a british leaf here burn his hand after trying to make explosives out of wooden ashes and fertilizer

Gets into a firefight.
Has to way until the boiler heats up.

With real life motor powered guns that process normally only takes a couple or more seconds

Not steampunk enough. Add more wheel valves, regulators, and polished brass.

looks like a very shitty potato cannon

Version 2 but now bullets actually get positioned properly in the action to be able to get ejected out the muzzle by steam

Potatoe cannons are far easier to design friend

Holy fuck I'm worried about how anyone on this site would survive in an actual socialist society much less work an industrial job, guns utilize the kind of physics you would've learned in fucking grade school not PhD and Harvard type shit you'd have to spend literally years of your time to learn how to develop

The US military has built combustion light gas guns in the past, which in a way look like OP's picture. Steam isn't useful in these guns because the speed of sound in steam isn't much faster than air. That's why these guns use hydrogen where OP placed steam.

Dont higher temperatures allow for faster and more dense gases allowing for more powerful blasts?
>>

 No.10364

>>10348
Higher temps and low molecular weight gases are needed for higher velocities. Guns powered by the usual smokeless powders max out at ~6000 fps because their combustion makes higher molecular weight gases. Light gas guns used by NASA that use hydrogen as a working fluid reach 23,000 fps.

>>10364
Low molecular weight per individual particle right? Since you would only need enough mass per particle to overcome the resistance of the object your trying to create a force on and thus too much mass wastes energy?
>>

 No.10385

>>10379
I think it has to do with the fact that low molecular weight means easily compressible and it has a high speed of sound.
