Rube Goldberg Device
An entirely complicated and complex system created by ridiculously good looking men, to achieve one mind boggling simple task.
Bottle filled with bee bees has weight in different parts of the
bottle. The bottle has to be balanced perfectly at the center
of mass before the chain reaction occurs.
As the chain reaction occurs, the center of mass is offset and moved from the back to the front and in effect, the torque of the bottle triggers another chain reaction by triggering beads and gravitational force.
T = I(bottle+I(neck) * alpha
As the beads travel in linear motion, they experience the conservation of translational energy, thus creating linear kinetic energy.
For the translational kinetic energy, that is the kinetic energy associated with rectilinear motion, of a body with constant mass , whose center of mass is moving in a straight line with speed , as seen above is equal to
Through the system of the angular ramps, the bee bee’s experience conservation of momentum and end with the same velocity they start with.
P1 = p2
M1v1 = m1v1’
