Re: Machines B/C

I think you missed that it's a sphere and it's rolling, so we have to include rotational kinetic energy in our energy equation. Taking that into Consideration, We get [KE (translational) + KE (Rotational) = PE] The formula for rotational KE is (1/2 * Rotational Inertia * Omega^2 ). A solid sphere h...

Re: Easiest event for you? Opinions! :3

For me, Mousetrap during the 2018 season was super easy. Hovercraft would take a close second.

Re: Sounds of Music C

In my opinion, based on this year's rules, a string instrument would be one of the more ideal instruments since you can tune each individual string right before the pitch test just by changing the tension. With wind instruments, tuning each note is super difficult. For example, if your recorder goes...

Re: Circuit Lab B/C

For people who have taken physics C, how much more difficult is this event for division C than the scope of that class? Well, rule 3.d states there should be no calculus or differential equations in the competition, which is most of what Physics C is based around. Circuit Lab also doesn't cover ind...

Re: Untouchable Events

The tests isn't hard, not at all. But the actual build.... Once got 5th in a regionals soley off of test score, because the hover craft just failed. It's just an iffy proposition if you aren't going to invest a whole lot of time. Do or do not- There is no "guess I'll just throw together a hovercraf...

Re: Untouchable Events

Hovercraft = way too hard. It's one of those events that you either love or hate because it takes so much work (if you're good at it, you love it if you're not the best at it you never want to see it again). It just takes aloooot of time, time that most people aren't willing to spend on such an iff...

Re: Those moments you will never forget!

I remember a time back in 2015, when our Robo-Cross team was doing well. They got a significant amount of the items into the jug and it they were about to enter Zone D to achieve the most point they could get. They didn’t have that much time left, and robot was in Zone C, so all that stood in betwee...
