Who cares about equations and figuring this out. Just go build something and see if it works.

Build a trebuchet. I think it would be easier to build than a catapult or an airgun.

Build a modified potato gun, put a larger diameter barrel on there to accommodate the tp circumfrence...idk if it will work though cause the tp has a hole in the center...might have to stuff that with something.

sorry but fg=6.67x10^-11(m1)(m2)/d^2

your thinking of Fnormal which is w=mg or fn=mg, so it would be kg(9.8N)=fn

but yeah just build something you don't need equations, i just ran some quick numbers and its saying that a 1.5 pound object (.7 kg) will lift off easily with not much force.
