Albert the Elevator

A Rube-Goldberg Extravaganza


Our team

Our Team

  • Blake Adams

  • Jewett Moss

  • Matt Jones

  • Caroline Sneed


Rube goldberg device

Rube-Goldberg Device

Start: marble down a series of tubing

Marble knocks golf ball off of platform

Golf ball falls into cup 1

Cup 1 lifts cup 2 through pulley

Now lever is unbalanced and weighted bottle falls

End: 1 kg weight is lifted through the pulley


Conservation of energy

Conservation of Energy

  • GPEmarble→KEmarble

  • Elastic collision: KEmarble→ KEgolf ball

  • Decrease of GPEcup1 & Increase of GPEcup2

  • GPEbottle →KEbottle


Construction design issues

Construction & Design Issues

  • Switched from plastic cups to bottles

  • Change the height of the lever

  • Change the height of the pulley

  • Lifting weight in 10 seconds


Conclusions

Conclusions

  • Our setup was successful

  • We witnessed Physics at work :

    Dropping a marble → lifted a 1kg weight

  • We used teamwork to accomplish a task
