Physics Class Builds Mouse Trap Race Cars

The mouse trap race car project is an opportunity to reinforce some kinematic concepts in physics. Because physics is taught one idea at a time using one set of equations for that idea, it is difficult to see the interconnection of physics principals and equations. Projects, like the mouse trap race car, are designed to show students that physics formulas and physics concepts work together to define complex systems around them. The race car we use has three adjustable components - the wheel diameter, the lever arm length and the mouse trap location. These combine for 18 possible race configurations. One part...
