Daily Log for the Mousetrap Project
Day 1 (May 1, 2014)
The first day, I researched about how to
build a mousetrap adapted for speed and
where to buy the materials needed for
building it. Luckily, this you tube video:

You will need to do a lot of testing and adjusting in order to perfect your vehicle. This is why testing is so
important, you will not know what the problems are with your design until you experiment with your
vehicle and see how it performs. Making small

Problem
What is the speed of sound in air?
Variables
The universal wave equation relates the speed (v) of a wave to its frequency (f ) and wavelength
(_). The wavelength is determined from the length of the pipe (l ) and the number of the resonant

Purpose:
To find the initial charge in the pith sphere after touching it with the Van de Graff generator.
Hypothesis:
We touched the hanging ball with the Van de Graff generator, so the charge was transferred in a small amount in less than a
microsecond.
