Big Blue Miles Hall Aaren Rice Jeff Depriest Chad Owen The Crew The Setup • Our stamper is made mostly of wood, coat hangers, duct tape, golf balls, fishing wieghts, a mouse trap, and a stamp. • Our wood was just scrap wood found around the house. • We bound everything together using gorilla glue and nails. • We spent a little money on a stamp and duct tape. Overview • Our project starts by pushing a golf ball, which collides with two more golfballs. The final golf ball falls down a ramp. The golf ball knocks a cup off of a seesaw. • This drops a weight attached to the other end of the see-saw. This sets off a mouse trap which stamps the stamp. Big Blue Energy Transfers Golf ball -perfectly elastic collision -Gravitational Potentail Energy to kinetic Engery Mouse Trap -Spring potential energy to rotational kinetic energy Conclusion We spent about 6 hours in constructing the device, and about 4 hours planning it. We had some problems with: – Getting the wieght to fall on the mouse trap release. – Aiming the golf ball to hit the cup. Were gald we got to finish this class on a fun note.
