We want to build a pumpkin chunkin' launcher from Tesla Coil parts (and maybe some more). We were originally thinking a rail gun would be the closest thing to make it, but from the designs I've seen it would have to be massive to fit a pumpkin.
I also know of electric motors which turn electrical energy to kinetic energy, but I don't see how we could use this could launch a pumpkin.
Are there any other ways to turn Electrical Energy to Kinetic Energy so we can launch a pumpkin?
Could you please let me know how I can make my question more on topic before downvoting?
