The Mouse Deathtrap Volume Control
• Step 1: Turn the key triggering the Mouse Deathtrap (razorblade mousetrap).
• Step 2: The Mouse Deathtrap releases a string that drops a pin releasing a marble.
• Step 3: The marble goes through a length of small tubing.
• Step 4: The marble collides with dominoes at the end of the tubing.
• Step 5: The dominoes fall onto each other and trip another mousetrap.
• Step 6: The mousetrap is connected to a rod that raises the volume of the speakers.
Stored Energy
• In Step 1: There is torque in the turning of the key.
• Step 2: There is tension in the string and the pin drops due to gravity which releases the marble.
• Step3: The potential energy in the marble is converted to kinetic as it begins to go through the tubing.
• Step 4: An elastic collision occurs between the marble and the first domino resulting in the marble bouncing back into tubing.
• Step 5: Dominos are pushed beyond center of mass and create inelastic collisions as each one falls into the next.
• Step 6: Rotational kinetic energy, torque, and rotational velocity turns up the volume on the speaker.
Complications
• Setting up the deathtrap with razor blade.
• Setting off the deathtrap by using key.
• Marble release and getting stuck in initial pvc piping.
• Adjusting height of impact from marble to domino.
• Finding way to turn up volume with rod.
• Injuries…
Conclusions

This project helped with:

• Team work experience.
• Problem solving and troubleshooting.
• Learning about construction and design.
• Making an interesting way to turn up volume!
• First Aid
