Question about a videogame
So, I have built a gun in a game called Children of a dead earth, this gun is a railgun an it can shoot 9,2 gram projectiles at a velocity of 53,7 km/s but there is one thing that I don't know if would work in real life, the barrel of the gun is only 48 meters long and for the projectile to go from 0 km/s to 53,7 km/s using a barrel this short it would have to withstand more than 3 million Gs of acceleration for a very shor time. My question is, can matter hold itself together in this situation? (sorry for the writing errors, english is not my mother language)
