# How many joules is a airsoft bb?

## How many joules is a airsoft bb?

There’s a big difference in FPS but the kinetic energy it carries on flight will be the same, 1.34 Joules, regardless of what BB weight you use. Hence once the BB hit your target, 1.34 Joules will be transfered to the target.

What is joules in airsoft?

Chrono in Joules. To ensure maximum safety on your field, all airsoft replicas should be measured in joules with the actual BBs used in the game (=energy of the BB after leaving the muzzle), not FPS with 0.2g BBs. Only the Energy / Joules translates into pain and injury potential.

### How many joules is my airsoft gun?

So, 1.3 joules for auto-fire or burst fire airsoft guns and 2.5 joules for single-shot or semi-auto airsoft guns.

How many joules is 1000 FPS?

Joules per second to Foot-pounds per second

1 Joules per second = 0.7376 Foot-pounds per second 10 Joules per second = 7.3756 Foot-pounds per second
9 Joules per second = 6.6381 Foot-pounds per second 1000 Joules per second = 737.56 Foot-pounds per second

## What is 1 Joule in FPS?

328fps
328fps is 100m/s, and a 0.2g bb travelling at this speed possess the energy of exactly 1 Joule.

What is a Joule in airsoft?

Generally speaking, a Joule is a unit for measuring kinetic energy (or work) as it is transferred to another object. In airsoft, itâ€™s the amount of energy used produced to propel a BB.

### What is the unit of kinetic energy for airsoft guns?

Joules is the derived International System unit of kinetic energy. Given everything the same in your airsoft gun (compression, spring, barrel length, etc), FPS is relative to the BB weight you are using but the kinetic energy it produces is always the same. This means that if your airsoft gun is shooting 380 FPS…

How do you measure the muzzle velocity of an airsoft gun?

Countries that use the Metric System measure muzzle velocity in Metres Per Second (MPS). You may find MPS on imported airsoft guns. As a general rule, 1FPS = 0.3048MPS. Another useful measurement for airsoft gun firing quality is the kinetic energy transferred to the target.

## Is FPS only half the story when it comes to airsoft?

But FPS is only half of the story when it comes to the power of your airsoft gun. What is the UK airsoft power limit? Airsoft sites differ in what is an acceptable FPS and Site Limits should always remain under the legal recommendations.
