This article from California State Chico does a great job of explaining the physics of the cannon.

More on figuring out the speed.

    The design of the vacuum Cannon is nice. This article explains the physics of the cannon which a great job done by California State Chico. There are so many online sites which explain the building method of these cannon. Sam Sampere`s designed a best construction plan for this Cannon.
