A ball rolls up another object on a frictionless surface Documents
This EJS model shows a ball that can run up a curved incline. There is no friction between the objects or between the object and the ground. The total momentum in the horizontal direction and the total energy of the system must be conserved. The user can try different initial velocities and masses to see how the motion changes. Graphs of the various velocities and energies involved are shown.
