Rube Goldberg Machine
Transcript of Rube Goldberg Machine
By: Zainab Maniya
The highlighter on the car hits the first book causing it to fall. Then they all hit each other and fall like dominoes. That is Potential to Kinetic and Kinetic to Sound energy.
I move the car with the highlighter back and forth which causes it to move forward. That is Mechanical to Kinetic and Potential to Kinetic energy.
Kinetic Energy: Energy that is involved with motion.
Potential Energy: Energy matter has because of it's position.
Electric Energy: Energy that moves electric charges.
Mechanical Energy: Energy that is possessed by an object due to its motion or due to its position.
Sound Energy: Energy that moves in waves.
Types Of Energy Used
The Rube Goldberg Machine In Action
My Rube Goldberg Machine
I made this Rube Goldberg Machine to turn off a light. This Rube Goldberg Machine has five steps and uses 5 different types of Energy. The five types of Energy are Kinetic, Potential, Electric, Sound and Mechanical.
The last book hits the soccer ball causing it to move forward. That is Potential to Kinetic energy.
The ball hits the cassette causing it to fall. The cassette hits the other cassettes causing all of them to fall like dominoes. That is Potential to Kinetic and Kinetic to Sound energy.
The last cassette hits the cup supporting the cup with pebbles that is attached with string to the light. When the cups fall the cup attached to the switch, full of pebbles falls. The heavy pebbles cause the light to go out. That is Kinetic to Electric and Potential to Kinetic energy.
