  1. The machine starts with this metal ruler hits the ball. This is Elastic energy to Mechanical energy.
  2. The ball moves down the inclined plane to this pully system, started by gravitational energy.
  3. The cup on the right moves up and pull up the peace of the wood to become an inclined plane causing the marble to move, which is gravitational energy to mechanical.
  4. The marble moves down a pipe and causing the car to move, mechanical to mechanical. The car moves this lever causing the next marble to move, this is mechanical to mechanical.
