Physics of the project

Step 1: Pulley drops ball onto placeholder. Creates a Mechanical Advantage.
Step 2: Ball moves down track through various pieces including centripetal force and gravity.
Step 3: Ball hits car and pushes car transferring its momentum.
Step 4: Car moves down incline plane and gains kinetic energy it then takes a 180 turn into pendulum. That 180 turn uses centripetal force.
Step 5: Pendulum transfers its momentum into a different car.
Step 6: That car transfers its momentum into some dominos which turn left 90 degrees and hit a marble.
Step 7: That marble goes down an incline plane and transfers its momentum into a car.
Step 8: The car gets sped up by a booster and uses centripetal force to turn 180 degrees and the 90 degrees to the right finally hitting another car and transferring its motion.
Step 9: The other car gets hit into a booster and launched up 42 cm to take a 180 degree turn while using centripetal force to guide its path. It then goes down an incline plane goes under step 7’s incline plane and takes a 90 degree turn to the right and transfers its motion into a ball.
Step 10: The ball transfers its motion into a DVD case.
Step 11: The case falls on a seesaw (lever).
Step 12: The lever knocks up a ball.
Step 13: The ball transfers its motion into some dominos.
Step 14: The dominos transfer their motion into a marble.
Step 15. The marble rolls down an incline plane and transfers its motion into a car.
Step 16: The car goes through a booster and transfers its motion into the spinner on a bingo cage.
Step 17: The Spinner spins and the bingo cage (wheel and axle) and releases a bingo ball.
