switch and 9V battery is shown below. . A 3-pole switch has been included in the kit but it may be used simply as a Single Pole Single Throw (SPST) switch as shown below.Automatic Actuator Circuit The basic circuit diagram for the connection of the motor.

The minimum dimensions of the base must be as follows.Base And Axles The basic layout of the base is shown below. Overall Length : 12 inches Width : 9 inches (Excluding Wheels) .

also called plain-carbon steel.29% carbon. is the most common form of steel because its price is relatively low while it provides material properties that are acceptable for many applications.16–0. Mild steel has a relatively low tensile strength.Mild Steel Rod Mild steel. Linkage And Connecting Rod Length of Rod Provided : 6 ft . but it cannot be hardened by heat treatment. making it malleable and ductile. • • • • Front Axle Rear Axle With Crank Motor Shaft With Crank Actuating Rod. Mild steel contains 0.

.Rear Axle With Crank The purpose of this crank is to convert the reciprocating motion of the connecting rod into the rotary motion of the rear axle.

Motor Shaft With Crank The purpose of this crank is to convert the rotary motion of the motor shaft to reciprocating motion of the actuating arm. .

It achieves this by using at least two races to contain the balls and transmit the loads through the balls. The purpose of a ball bearing is to reduce rotational friction and support radial and axial loads. As one of the bearing races rotates it causes the balls to rotate as well.Bearings A ball bearing is a type of rolling-element bearing that uses balls to maintain the separation between the bearing races. In most applications. one race is stationary and the other is attached to the rotating assembly (like a hub or shaft). Because the balls are rolling they have a much lower coefficient of friction than if two flat surfaces were sliding against each other. .

This is an indication of the speed transmission efficiency of your system of linkages.however. [30 Points] 2. We examine your model. • The speed your Pump Wagon is capable of. test the torque transmission efficiency of your system of linkages. This is a test of the following properties. • The stability of your Pump Wagon. [20 Points] . The first stage is a straight-up drag race. Time taken and lateral deviation from the straight line joining the start and finish points will be measured. The second test will be a surprise. [20 Points] 3. Your Pump Wagons must travel along a flat arrow-straight track of length 14ft from start to finish. It will . Design overview.
