In the lab, the two teams transfer potential energy into kinetic energy by firing catapult planes through targets. Out on Richard's secret test facility, the Lab Rats try firing something much, much bigger - a washing machine. Just how far down the runway can they send the kitchen appliance flying, using a catapult created from bungee cord and two enormous cranes?
