Re: Air Trajectory B/C

I am having a different problem. The rules say, "All air device chambers must start launch at ambient air pressure and must automatically return to ambient pressure." We are using a red rubber "dodge ball" that begins at ambient pressure, gets deflated during launch, thus returning to ambient press...

Re: Air Trajectory B/C

So they picked easy distances, 3 and 6 meters. I got between 100 and 200 MM for all four shots but only got second. Probably would have done better if my partner agreed to do a bucket shot. The judge gave me a problem with the air pump but he caved and gave it to me, thanks everyone for the help an...

Re: Air Trajectory B/C

One final question, for the graphs, does anyone have an example of what they are suppose to look like? Also, can you have either a table or a graph? or do you have to have both? You need both data tables and graphs. I posted a template that you can use for your graphs. I've gotten full scores on gr...

Re: Air Trajectory B/C

It has to reinflate it by itself. So you cannot use any mechanism to re-inflate it, I believe. When I attempted to use the kickball, we just switched to using a soda bottle because it was really irritating to work with. Could you direct me to the rule that suggests that or explicitly says it? All I...

Re: Air Trajectory B/C

I have finally figured out my device and got it to work. The only problem is, it is hard to re-inflate the kickball I am using. Would it be against the rules to use an air pump for an air mattress to fill it? I know the rules say that you can not have anything electrical as part of your device, but ...

Re: Air Trajectory B/C

I was going to post a picture of what I made just in case other people needed ideas but it says my picture is too large. Oh well. I did find out that if you cut a small hole in a kickball you can just fit a garden hose in the end and not have any leakage. I over-complicated my original idea. Since t...

Re: Air Trajectory B/C

I was looking at a team that had a triggering device similar to the Official video released. I knew I was not going to do that but one thing from the video that i realized was their method of adjusting distance. They raised or lowered the weight using the rope to a certain line marked, and then rele...

Re: Scioly Team Music

[/quote]Good for your coaches for allowing 6th graders to compete, but only 4 8th graders? Who was crazy enough to limit the number of experienced people?[/quote] Im not sure if this format will be every year or just this year but she only picked 4 8th graders. In the past years I have done it, we h...
