1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data For school I have to make a mouse trap car out of spaghetti. Everything is made of Spaghetti except the wheel and axles and the power arm of the mouse trap. We are allowed to use 1 or 2 mouse traps, one to power the car and one for a demolition device. The mousetrap objective is to survive a crash.. (demolition) and a protect an egg which is housed in a spaghetti house no larger than 10 cm by 10 cm by 10cm. No more than 5 strands of spaghetti can be glued tigther or else it would defeat the purpose of this activity. For wheels only standard size and mini size CD-R or CD+R may be used. four wheels or 3 wheels is our choice and theres a weight limit of 500 grams and a length limit of 50 cm. 2. Relevant equations 1. Is it better to use a smaller wheel for the front of the car? I am aiming for speed; does smaller wheels in front help? 2. I was thinking of making a mouse trap car with a point in front so that it can "spear" the other car during impact. Is this a good idea? 3. Shoudl I attempt to make a demolition device with my 2nd mouse trap or should I just use 1 mousetrap to power? I heard that trying to use 2 moustraps to power the vehicle is not a good idea.. 4. Where should I put the egg? I would assume towards the front becasue of weight. 3. The attempt at a solution see pic note: pic is of a proposed cage for the car..
