The mouse deathtrap volume control

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

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

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

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
