### The Theoretical project

Overview of Design
• The device begins with a car projected to provide enough force to collide with a weight.
• The weight tips the balanced track. A marble and two cars simultaneously roll off the balanced track.
• The marble rolls along the back side to trigger the other team’s device.
• The two cars roll into a red cup.
• The red cup and pulley system are used to pull up our banner.
Overview of Operations
• When the car reaches the curve, conservation of angular momentum is applied.
• L=L’
• Conservation of linear momentum is evident when the car collides with the weight.
• mv + m v = m v′ + m v′ (perfectly elastic)
• (0.0294kgcm/s) = 0.035kg* v’ where final velocity of weight is 0.840 cm/s.
• Center of mass is seen when the balanced track tips.
• R = Ʃ (mr)/(m)
• Torque is applied with the pulley system.
• T = I * a
Concerns…
• We had an issue with keeping the cup straight so the cars actually make it into the cup.
• We do not have full confidence when it comes to starting the device.
• Sometimes the car does not collide with the weight good enough to tip the balance.
• Basically we’re not sure this will work at all…
