My System Specs


46g for a golf ball which is 23 times as heavy. I'm not sure but the outside circumference is close is it not? So 23 x 15 = 345psi or more properly 2.42 inches of mercury.

For you to get a golf ball to do roughly what you did with the ping pong ball it would take compressed air @ 345psi or a vacuum @ 2.4in mercury @ 0c. To get it supersonic, well that's a whole other ..ahem ball game.

I was thinking, we could rent one of these for an hour.
