I'm looking at increasing the amount of damage that my catapult is going to do - and I've been thinking that putting a floating disk in there, to increase the payload.
So, assuming a specially designed catapult is built (I'm thinking it has to, for example, be extra wide, so it can accomodate the disk without forcing it to rotate relative to the ground - otherwise the increased payload idea might not work out), what effect will casting a floating disk, and adding it in the middle of the payload, have?
Will the distance travelled change (esp. on a smaller payload)? Can a heavier load be delivered? What kind of damage is a high-speed disk likely to cause to a target?
