Homework Help: Tin Can Physics

  1. Oct 21, 2005 #1
    Well i have been assigned a project in my physics class that is totally clueless to me so i have come to all you smart peoples to help me with it cuz im like totally clueless of what to do...

    I am to create a rolling device powered by (a) rubber band(s) (no engines, etc)

    -- The tin can has to be a coffee can or similar
    -- The rolling device has to be powered by (a) rubber band(s)
    -- To make the rolling device operate, you may adjust, wind, etc. the rubber band
    -- You may use other material to help your rolling device operate

    Anybody have any idea on how to make something good? When we test these in class, we will be looking for speed and distence.

    Please help
