The Theoretical project


Overview of design
Overview of Design Capps

  • 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
Overview of CappsOperations

  • 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
Concerns… Capps

  • 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…
