Mouse trap Essay
My group's mouse trap car is mad up in different ways. The mouse trap car has many different parts to it as well. Some of the parts that are added to the car are, extended brass rod hooked on to the trap, and a turning wheel to make the turn, a CD, and CD wheel adapters, and McDonald straw for the axle. Also where going to have a 10” by 5” Styrofoam platform to set the mouse trap on.
One of the other parts hooked to the mouse trap car is , the extended brass rod. This helps the wheel turn in a steady past. It works by hooking a fishing line on it. Then hooking that to the axle and spin it, that helps the wheels turn on the mouse trap car. It will help the car go full distance.
Another part of the mouse trap car is the CD’s. This is another main part of the car. The CD’s are 3” in diameter. That’s standard size for the mouse trap car. It helps the car turn as well.
There is a part on the car that hooks the CD and the axle together. That is the CD wheel adapter. This will hook right on the CD, then to the axle. This will make the CD’s part of the car and stay on.
One of the parts that hook up to the CD wheel adapter is the axle. The axle is a rod type part that connects a wheel with a wheel. Which goes threw the brass eye hole which hooks to the car. That helps the cars movement. It helps it by hooking it up with the fishing string turning it set the mouse trap off then it goes.
Also theirs the turning wheel. This will help the car turn when going towards the wall. This is made up of a small wooden rod. As well as a small CD. So when it hit’s the wall it rolls right off.
Last but not least theirs the platform. It is made up of a Styrofoam material. Its going to make it easy for us to put everything together. The axle, CD’s, CD wheel adapter, turning wheel. Also it might even go faster. That’s my essay on the Mouse trap Car.
