Physical Science Catapult

In this project, the greatest problem was time, because we assure that our catapult would have exceeded the expectatives if with more time. A basic change would be our basic shape, because we never thought of a triangular base. Another change would be our basic launcher, because it didn't had the best composition for it to hold weight. We would change a lot of the catapult in itself, because we thought very few sometimes when we were making it. It would be almost totally different. We have learned a very important lesson when doing this type of things. There wil be always room for improvement. In transformations of energy, it is obvious that we had mechanical, because the energy called force was conducted to a synergic or coherent group of pieces, which moved the force together towards a direction, or in fewer words, it worked trough a set of individual forces. It was mechanical in general, but that is due to the kinetic energy converting itself in potential. There were obviously more transformations of energy involved in here, but they were not very significant in this case.
