Soda Constructor Challenge 3 (100 points)

 

 

 

Problem: How many diagonals do I need to add to a weak 2-dimensional figure to make it withstand the effects of three full gravity falls?  

 

 

 

Restrictions to meet

 

 

Documentation/Evidence to show

 

 

You will need to test multiple figures and document how many diagonal segments were used for each.  Please start with a 4-sided figure and move onto a 5-sided figure and 6-sided figure. Test through at least a 10-sided figure.

 

 

Take two to three screen shots of each figure-

 

 

a)   one at the beginning before gravity is applied

 

 

b)    after the first gravity down is applied

 

 

c)    after the last gravity up is applied

 

 

Apply one full-level gravity down and one full-level gravity up to your figure.

 

 

 

Repeat twice more and document success or failure.

 

 

Create a powerpoint presentation with your screen shots.

 

 

Springiness and friction should stay in the center of the figure

 

 

Explain either through typing or audio what was a positive about your figure and what you needed to change after each failure before you start your newest figure.
