I'm not exactly sure what you're getting at but I'll try. Paintballs go through the hopper, feedneck, chamber, barrel, and then any accessory you might have after the barrel. In the hopper and feedneck friction is not an issue however in the chamber and especially the barrel it becomes more important. A chamber that fits too loosely around the ball can cause inaccuracy but a chamber too small can slow or warp the ball. You have to get as little friction as you can while maintaining a fairly tight fit. Same things apply to the barrel. That's why barrel come in different bore sizes, to best match the paintball.

A second reason friction comes up in paintball debate is the sniper barrel length issue. Many companies advertise 20" sniper barrel!!! The trouble with that is a 20" barrel adds no more accuracy then a 14" barrel. All it does is add more friction and slows the ball.

^^^ agreed, in all reality the first 8" of a barrel is for accuracy, after that its all porting to quiet it down, iv seen a 8" barrel shoot just as accurately as a 20" but the 8 took a lot more co2 to use (due to the short distance the ball has to accelerate) and the 20 was much quieter (due to the vast amounts of porting

### What is internal air in paintball?

Air is the source of power for the paintball marker. It is the pressure that moves all of the internal parts (unless electrical) and physically moves the paintball out of the barrel.

### What happens to the magnitude of the fluid friction acting on a submarine as the submarine's speed increases?

As a submarine moves more quickly through the water, the fluid friction will increase. The two (the magnitude of the speed and the magnitude of fluid friction) are directly proportional. That means what happens to one happens to the other. If one goes up, the other goes up. And if one goes down, the other goes down.

### Where can you buy a Virtue board for your paintball vibe in Johannesburg?

You can either purchase it through a paintball shop. Or but directly through virtue. I recommend this, because then you know you are getting exactly what you payed for.

### What will happen to the temperature of the rockets nose cone as it moves through the air?

The temperature of the rocket's nose cone will increase as it moves through the air due to the friction between the air and the surface of the cone. This friction generates heat that can cause the temperature to rise significantly during reentry into the Earth's atmosphere. Thermal protection systems are used to prevent overheating and damage to the spacecraft.

### What happens to the force of friction as a cyclist goes faster?

As a cyclist goes faster, the force of friction remains relatively constant. The force of friction between the tires and the road depends on the coefficient of friction and the normal force, which do not change significantly with speed.

### Where can someone purchase a paintball minigun?

One can purchase a paintball minigun when one goes to the website of eBay. Price for a new one is around \$325. Price of a used one is, of course, cheaper.

### Where can one find discounted paintball accessories?

One can find discounted paintball accessories from Just Paintball, Paintballing, Discount Paintball, Zephyr Paintball, Outpost Paintball, Paintball UK and Armed Paintball stores.

### What are the ways in which friction is reduce on aeroplane?

by giving it better aerodynamics you can reduce friction. but also the faster it goes the more friction it gets.

### Are paintball tournaments televised?

The large majority of paintball events are not televised. The main medium through which to watch paintball is through live webcasts during events (which are almost exclusively of national tournaments, featuring professional teams). The biggest televised paintball events include: 2006 Smart Parts World Paintball Championship (ESPN) 2006 US Paintball Championship (ESPN) &amp; 2011 Surf City Open (ESPN 3) The latter of which can be viewed on 'replay' on www.espn3.com For montage clips, search sites like youtube, vimeo, and pbnation
