What affects efficiency and what would you expect the actual efficiency to be?
Does not include effects of:
mass of beam
Efficiency ~ 50% or less
(compute for report!)
so Rm < hm1 / m2)
assume: h = 4 feet
m1 = 50 lbs
given: m2 = 3 lbs
R < 67 feet
What aspects of the trebuchet can be varied (after primary construction) to change throw distance?
Design Constraint: must fit in 5-gallon bucket.
What materials might be appropriate?
