When you pull back the spring.
Mouse trap in its non-set state has zero potential energy. When you pull back the spring to set the trap you are storing the energy it took you to set the trap into the spring.

Potential energy. An example of potential energy is a charged mouse trap. An example of kinetic energy is the mouse trap being sprung. Potential energy can be thought of as "stored kinetic energy". And kinetic energy can be thought of as "released potential energy"

You might have to research these types of energies in particular. But, basically a mouse trap car uses:-Potential energy-Kinetic energy-sound energy-Mechanical Energy

The energy of the mouse trap racer is originally stored in the potential energy of the wound-up mouse trap's spring. The spring releases its energy and the potential energy is changed into kinetic energy of motion.

the elastic potential energy of the spring on the mouse trap is changed to kinetic energy, causing the car to move. The kinetic energy in turn changes to thermal energy as friction causes the car to come to a halt

The plural of mouse trap is mouse traps.

You get a mouse trap...

There are several types of traps for mice. There is a trap that kills the mouse and a trap that does not kill the mouse. As for the one that does kill the mouse, this is how it works. Once the mouse goes for the bait set on the trap, once the bait is touched, the spring snaps shut.

You put your hand in a working mouse trap and start running;)

you can put elcteric wires under the mouse trap

Well the object of the game is to trap the mouse so if the mouse keeps following where you are about to go, put the pillar in the middle of the trap. That way it distracts the mouse so he doesn't get in your way. Hope this helps. :)

The plural is mouse traps.

Some that catches like a mouse trap and skeet trap or steam trap

Conversion of energy tries to reduce energy loss in your mouse trap car. So there fourth, the friction. The wheels.

It is better to use small trap cars as the larger ones can prevent no use to trapping a mouse the small traps are much quicker to get the mouse/rats.

Victor multi kill is the best mouse trap in the World. It automatically kill Mouses each time the mouse enter the inside of the trap and it shock the mouse with electrictronic shock. Victor multi kill is the ultimate mouse killer and automatically traps mices(Mouses) giving no chances to escape. It is an electronic mouse trap that will protect pets, kids and the whole family in the house.
