Origami Car

    Newer Older

    I made a couple more of these origami cars today after our Physics semester final out of purple post-it notes. Once the test was over and we could talk, I made the two cars move towards each other and asked the question "If both cars are of equal mass and one car is carrying a load of one nerd candy, which car decelerates faster? On which car is the momentum greatest?" Our lab table laughed histerically and then our teacher scolded us and stated that Table 1 is full of loud mouths.

      Diagrams are available at www.origami.com

      Just search for "car" and this model should appear. You will probably need adobe reader. :)

      Happy folding. :)

      Nice!
      I was searching for origami models, and I ran across your picture.
      This is probably my most popular model. Very nicely folded by the way. Better than the one in my diagrams.

      BTW The mass of one nerd wouldn't add appreciably to the deceleration, but the friction coefficient of the paper would.
