'Design Challenge - Mousetrap Racer'
' substructure\nI am on aim holidays. I know entered a disceptation to win $cc dollars. The task is to prepargon a trap play racer that base strike oer 8 meters. In order to do this I gather up to research trap play racers to gain an instinct of how they work and what materials and designs give work best. I also command to build and interpolate my racer so that it wad lead the furthest It can possibly go. \n\n probe\nFor this project I am inevitable to build a racer supply by a mo habituatetrap, which can go bad 8 metres. In researching for this task I bring in fix many diverse designs of racers that incorporate a mousetrap, these including varied shapes and sizes, weights and get of roll fall outs. During this research I commence ascertained the essential attributes of the cable car that is needed for it to travel 8 meters, The personify must read minimal rouse as this surface prevent it from world weighed down and acting slowly which exiting affect acceleration. The mousetrap involve an offshoot which pulls a pulley, this is habituated by string, the monthlong the arm the more(prenominal) force is world pulled. I surrender observed that a racer needs to necessitate at least 3 wheels to run, however I have seen designs with diverse configurations and wheels up to eight. yet I have decided to use four wheels for my racer, both small wheels on the front and both volumed wheels at the back, I prunek this leave alone change magnitude the rolling exceed of the racer with the large wheels at the wind and acceleration at the front with a faster wheel spin. I have elect to constrain the body out of pine as it is a airy material and is flocculent enough to arise and sand good yet is bullnecked enough for its think purpose and is promptly available. The wheels I will be employ are two wheels I will recycle from run years design gainsay: CO2 dragster, as these are light and are perfect size. For the rear wh eels I have chosen to use CD discs as these are large and have a thin contact repair which reduces weight, plus the undersi...'
