My Rube Goldberg Machine to turn off the lights
Diana Okoro
A-Day 1st Block

Materials
Table (or flat surface equivalent to the size and distance of a table)
Rulers (3)
Baseballs (2)
Toy Car (1)
Dominions (27)
Light Switch

Step 5
The domino hits the switch

This is a transformation from:
Gravitational potential energy to
Kinetic energy
Step 2
The last domino will hit a ruler that will hit the other domino.

This is a transformation from:
Kinetic energy to
Gravitational potential energy to
Mechanical energy

Energies to know
Radiant energy- energy traveling as electromagnetic waves.
Kinetic energy- energy associated with motion.
Potential energy-  the energy that a piece of matter has because of its position or nature or because of the arrangement of parts.
Mechanical Energy- the total of potential energy and kinetic energy in a mechanical system.
Gravitational potential energy- the energy stored in an object as the result of its vertical position or height.

Rube Goldberg Machine

Doing something simple in a very complicated way that is not necessary.

Setup
Place all the materials in this specif order:
place thirteen domins behind each other ( 2 cm apart)
then take a baseball and put a ruler on top (making a scale)
then place thirteen domins ( exactly like the first thirteen)
at the end of the scale place a toy car
then place a ruler with a domino on top of it
Step 3
The ruler will hit a car

This is a transformation from:
Potential energy to
Kinetic energy
Step 1
Push over the first domino

This is a transformation from:
Potential energy to
Kinetic energy
Step 4
The car will hit another ruler with a domino at the end of it

This is a transformation from:
Kinetic energy to
Mechanical energy to

All the things you need to know
Step 1-2
Gravitational potential energy
Step 3-5
