Mousetraps in Motion - Sick Science! #090

Read the full experiment at Use the spring-loaded action of a mousetrap to make a real working car. A mousetrap is a stellar example of converting potential energy to kinetic energy. The spring of the mousetrap is held back with a bunch of potential energy and, once released, snaps forward in a burst of kinetic energy. What if you could harness the release of energy to power a car? We'll show you how with the Mousetraps in Motion experiment.Want more experiments like this?
