1. Provide the updated computer drawing for your individual RG setup.
2. Explain your setup.
The circuit starts with the force sensing resistor triggering a transistor to switch channels and using the diode the relay sends current to pin 2 from the pin it switched to in order to continue to flow after the transistor no longer sends any voltage. From here, voltage is sent to the X-OR gate where it is met by another input from the other very similar portion of the circuit. While the first relay sends a 1 to the x-or the x-or sends a signal to the op-amp that is then amplified and sent to the dc motor which pulls a lever on the built set-up pictured below that lets the marble run. Once the marble reaches the bottom it hits another force sensing resistor that triggers the second relay and sends a 1 to the x-or gate which then has inputs of 1/1 and then stops giving output to the motor. The transistor after the force sensing resistor can be used to trigger the second part of the RG setup.
3. Provide photos of the circuit and setup.

4. Provide at least 2 new videos of your setup in action, one being a failed attempt.
5. What failures did you have? How did you overcome them?
Failures this week occured connecting our circuits. in the video it is shown how after my circuit ends, angels doesnt start. this was happening because an issue with the op amp and the voltage my circuit provided it. The voltage my circuit was sending his would drop due to being wired up in series so the connection acted as a voltage divider. after fine tuning input levels we eventually found inputs that allowed it to work and as shown, we had success and my circuit triggered his after my mechanical aspect ended.
