Transformation of Energy Lab Report Instructions: In Part One of the Transformation of Energy lab, you will research and experiment with a Rube Goldberg Machine simulation to show the transformation of energy from one object to another to complete a simple task. In Part Two, you will design your own Rube Goldberg device. Record your observations and work in the lab report below. You will submit your completed lab report for both Part One and Part Two of the lab. Name and Title: Title of Lab: transformation of energy Student Name: shannon seevers Instructor: susan search Date:10-19-2020 Part One: Rube Goldberg Simulation Research Instructions: First, complete the Rube Goldberg Machine simulation located in the lesson by selecting the shelves, levers, five-pound weight, slingshot, and/or pail to activate or deactivate each item. Once you feel the design is complete, select "Go" to test the design. After you make the necessary adjustments in the simulation so that the Rube Goldberg device will function properly, you will answer the following question. Please write in complete sentences. List three examples of where potential energy is transformed to kinetic energy in the Rube Goldberg Machine simulation. Fully explain the energy transformations using complete sentences. (Example: The ball has potential energy when it sits on the shelf that transforms to kinetic energy when it falls to the ground.) Example 1: They grey ball on the catapult starts as potential energy then changes to kinetic energy when the weight drops on the catapult and the ball moves Example 2: the books are potential energy until the ball hits them and knocks the one book off that book turns into kinetic energy Example 3: the red ball starts out as potential energy then the hanging balls hit the red ball then the red ball starts rolling down the wood and the red ball is kinetic energy. Part Two: Your Rube Goldberg Device Design Instructions: Choose one option (either Build It or Draw it) to design your own Rube Goldberg device. Then, complete each of the sections of the lab report below. Your Rube Goldberg device design must include at least three energy transformations to perform a simple task. Option One: Build it If you build your device, you will need to turn in a video clip or photograph of your device along with a written description on how each step works. Option Two: Draw It If you draw your device, you will need to turn in your device design along with a wri
