Would this work at Nationals?
Its one or the other. It depends on what you transfer to next. If it requires heat EL-Therm. If it requires light EL-EM

What are the rest of you doing? 1.Yes that score is about average. 2. Yes 3. One way to come up with transfers is to use your knowledge of physics a...

Re: Mission Possible C

What do you guys think about a rack and pinion time managing device? It's basically gears moving (powered by a motor). I thought we could adjust it to give us more or less time. However, in the rules, it states that all time adjusting tasks in the MP should be non-electrical at the start, middle, a...

Re: Mission Possible C

So theoretically, you could claim chemical--> thermal, because the chemicals are what is causing the heat in the match? Yes, as long as its clear that the heat from the nichrome is not triggering the step that the match is supposed to. It worked for me. While I didn't use matches in my mission I ha...

Re: Mission Possible C

I'll also point you to rule 3.e. We might be issuing a FAQ about this very soon.... For those of you interested, here is rule 3.e. "The Five Basic Energy Forms used in transfers that will count for points are electrical, mechanical, thermal, chemical, and electromagnetic spectrum (radio, visible, a...

Re: Mission Impossible

That would be Thermal to Thermal. (It says on teh sample ETL that is posted on Soinc.org) The ETL sample sheet on sonic.org is only a reference for format(Section 4c. In Rules), not interpreting energy transfers. It only hurts you to not claim every possible thing that you can. NiChrome Igniting a ...

Re: Mission Impossible C

what transfers would nichrome wire heating up a match head, which ignites teh match, creating a flame? t-->c-->t ? t-->t ? That would be Thermal to Thermal.
