Homework Help: Another Mouse Trap Racer.

  1. Apr 11, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I must build a mouse trap racer which travels 6m and it must carry a full can of Pepsi-non Diet. It must finish in under 9seconds, However if I finish in under 5.5 sec. I get 100% and no written work so a fast model would be very nice. There are no restrictions on mass or materials. Thanks for any ideas / help.

    2. Relevant equations

    K= 1/2mv^2

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I tried to make a basic four wheeled racer with a large mouse trap arm and it did not reach the specified distance.
