To Whom it May Concern:

My name is Terik Daly. I am a freshman at Oak Grove High School in San Jose, CA. Current research that i am conducting requires that I accelerate particles anywhere between one millimeter to half a centimeter. These particles are composed of ferric iron, sediment, and trace minerals. The particles in question must be able to reach speeds greater than or equal to four kilometers a second. Are you aware of any equpment that does this? I need only the name of the apparatus. All and any leads are appreciated.

Hey Terik, I think a Van de Graaff might help.
