# Origami Paper Popping Time!

Suppose you folded three rectangular papers of different sizes and same densities into origami paper poppers, as instructed above. Let $$A$$ be the smallest popper, $$B$$ the medium popper, and $$C$$ the largest popper. The goal is to have the inner flaps appear outside, as shown below:

If you are to apply the same force for each popper without tucking the inner flaps out, what can be said about their popping outcomes?

Details and Assumptions:

• The creases of all three poppers are applied with the same amount of force.
• The swings are executed in the same constant motion for all three poppers.
• Your fingers still hold the tip of the popper after flicking it.
• Neglect air resistance.
