Very Elaborate Rube Goldberg Problem


Way to get extra credit for the midterm:
  • on the day of the midterm, bring in a problem created by you that links together at least three difference physics concepts discussed in the class up to this point.
  • You must also turn in with it the correct SOLUTION to each part of your problem in order to get the full extra credit.
