This project was about Rube Goldbergs. Rube Goldbergs are a series of chain reactions leading up to one final step. My final step was a ‘bang gun’ going off. This project was not just about working on our rube,we also did a few labs. We worked on our rube for most of the project so we had plenty of time to finish it if we worked hard. For your rube you have to have something similar to a pulley. After we finished our rube we had to make an analysis on 6 of the steps, you had to explain what the steps were and how they worked. This wasn't too hard, you just had to follow the rubric. The exhibition is pretty basic, we just had to present our rube and our analysis.
What steps were most challenging to make work? (How did you troubleshoot or redesign)
One of the most challenging steps was the pulley because we had to keep redoing it. To fix this problem we had to make the pulley a different way where there was only one pulley being used.
What one physics concept from your analysis is most important to the overall function of your rube.
The pulley was the most important part.
What was the hardest part of doing this project, how did you persevere?
The hardest part was having to change our idea from the wall idea.
Life in The Cold
in our test we wanted to find out if exercising would increase your heart rate and temperature. we tested it with a thermometer and a heart bpm monitor. Our experiment work and was proven true.
In this project to contribute I took the temperature and the heart rates. After I did that I then made the results page and did all of the math for our data.
