					INTRODUCTION
   “STRAIGHT UP, ON THE ROCKS”
            Alaka Hoskins, Brittany Kopscak, Michael Love, Marie Pierce
QUICK OVERVIEW
            •The first step shows a
            series of elastic collisions.
            •Pulling the first ball back
            creates potential energy
            which is converted into
            kinetic energy when
            released.

            •The second step is to
            convert potential energy
            in the fifth golf ball to
            kinetic by hitting it and
            letting it roll down all
            three ramps.
Quick Overview
                 •   After the golf ball is released, it
                     hits the mousetrap resting
                     under a glass to convert
                     potential energy to kinetic and
                     tip the marbles into a bucket.



                 •   When the marbles are tipped
                     into the bucket, it pulls the
                     weight up while moving down.
Summary
•   The construction and planning of the project took an
    estimated 6 hours to complete.
•   We encountered many problems along the way
    including:
    •   The weight interfering with our bucket
    •   The golf ball not hitting the mouse trap
    •   The golf ball falling off the ramps
    •   The weight distribution of the marbles
    •   The stability of our overall system
