MEASURING THE ELECTRICAL CHARGE AND VELOCITY OF A MOVING PROJECTILE
STANFORD RESEARCH INST MENLO PARK CA
Two different probes were developed for measuring the electrical charge and velocity of a moving charged projectile. The probes were tested using 532-inchdiameter steel balls fired from a rifle at roughly 4500 feet per second. The projectiles were frictionally charged to from 50 to 100 micromicrocoulomb by passing through a 0.0003-inch-thick plastic sheet.
