    replicate gun recoil with a solenoid

    Hi there !
    i am trying to replicate a gun recoil with a solenoid impact.
    the goal is to be able to achieve energy of 1 joule .
    is this possible ?
    how can i calculate the wattage needed ?
    my limitations :
    solenoid length 12 inches
    solenoid diameter: 1.5 inches

    Thanks !

    With that kind of diameter and length, I think I would be looking at pneumatic rather than electrical.
