Marble Course#

Two marbles travel in track as part of a Rube Goldberg machine. Both marbles cross line \(C\) at the same time, and flow at a their maximum speed. The maximum horizontal acceleration for marble A is \({{params.max_acc_A}}g\) with \(R\_{A} = {{params.ra}} in\) and for marble B is \({{params.max_acc_B}}g\) with \(R\_{B} = {{params.rb}} in\). The angle \(\theta = {{params.angle}}^{\circ}\).
