1 The runaway elephant! Designed and built by : Andrew Ammons, Robert Baker, and Daniel Lovelace.

2 Ideas Lost and Budget Pinball weight lifting Wire trip releasing mechanism Money $$$ Wood scrap $10, BB’s $10, hold on, $20 - $10 - $10 = uhh ohh… So I went over, total cost around

3 Design Process Lifting the Weight –Tension = Weight*sin(theta) –1kg*9.81m/s 2 = W sin(24) –W = N –W = m * a –m = kg –Theoretical mass required kg –So our weight ends up being??? m = 3.8kg –Why so much? –…friction… and so the problems start.

4 Problems Dimensions –Measure twice cut once –We made sure to do this… but…  –The point of no return…  And the cut and ask questions later begins… Do all engineers use this much duct tape? –The final product Dimensions  Does is do what is suppose to… well…

5 Working Together Lack of production leads to aggravation Learning from each other Special Thanks –Robert Baker, Christine Marino, Daniel Lovelace
