A video that caught my attention

Title of Video:900 mousetraps unleashed with Science Bob on Jimmy Kimmel Live

This video clip shows the chain reaction of when a ping pong ball (when thrown properly) can set off a mousetrap and eventually almost all of the mousetraps.

  • The first pingpong ball (that was thrown properly) can have a large chain reaction, causing the mousetraps to activate. Same goes to the concept of fod chain food web. A drop or increase in any of the tiers in the food chain can affect the animals throughout the chain. Some may go extinct.
  • There is gravity, because once the pingpong balls (and sometimes cheese) are ejected into the air, they will fall back down and trigger other mousetraps.
  • Elastic potential energy is present in set mousetraps. they can eject a light object further away.
