To: James Maxin From: Jeremy Kaiser; Student Date: Wednesday March 26, 2008 Subject: Technical Memo for Lab 4 experiment 1 Introduction: The purpose of this memo is to present the efficiency of metal bumpers in our mock pinball machine. The cart, used to simulate a ball, is to hit the metal bumper with different masses, thus different kinetic energy values. This will, in turn, help to decide the efficiency of the bumpers at different kinetic energy values Background: The cart is placed on a level and frictionless plane. There were 3 videos taken and each initial velocity was attempted to have the same velocity, however mass was added to the cart. The first, second, and third attempt had masses of 281g , 221g , and 261g respectively. Body: Upon completing the lab, we were attained this data from the videos: Masses of the carts Velocity in cm/s 281g BEFORE impact 13.51 281g AFTER impact 9.59 221g BEFORE impact 21.01 221g AFTER impact 19.18 261g BEFORE impact 16.69 261g AFTER impact 12.85
