Toy Idea

  1. May 8, 2012 #1
    As part of a culminating activity for my course, I am asked to design and build a toy for children that uses kinematics and conservation of energy. I was wondering if anybody could post some ideas?

    Why don't you tell us YOUR ideas first. If you HAVE no ideas, you are just asking us to do your work. That's not the way this forum works.

    Ok, well the requirements is to make it something simple that young children can play with.

    I've decided I'm going to make an elastic car.

    Now my next question is, Is there a way that I can find the spring constants of the rubber bands I will use?
