Drive in Movie Problem

Profile picture of Phil Todd

Phil Todd



This machine computes the best location to view a drive in movie (maximizes the angle).

The machine is composed of a pair of mechanical jaws attached at the ends to the top and bottom of the screen and at the middle to the viewing plane.  The jaws are pushed apart by a compressed spring, which will find equilibrium when the jaws are as far open as possible..
