Rail Guns the Unrealized Killer
In the movie the "Eraser" Arnold Schwarzenegger is a Witness Protection Agent. In the movie a company has developed a portable railgun and is planning on selling it to foreign powers. An employee, Lee Cullen, of the company decides to turn them into the government for treason. Following the events of the movie Arnold eventually gets ahold of one of the railguns. Now the question is what would have happened when he fires the rail gun.
Well when he first fires the gun the recoil caused by firing it produces 26549 kilometers a second of force which would slice through Arnold killing him instantly.
The victim on the other hand receives a much lesser force of only 3745 kilometers a second. Which is still enough to kill him instantly. In conclusion the railgun in this movie is simply unrealistic because it would kill any person instantly.
