Website Detail Page

written by Andrew Duffy
This web page is an interactive physics simulation relating to circular motion. The system is a ball on a string, rotating in a horizontal circle perpendicular to gravity. The user can change the mass, or the tension in the string.  The ball's velocity and angle relative to the string are calculated and displayed.  This item is part of a larger collection of introductory physics simulations developed by the same author.







This is part of a collection of similar simulation-based student activities.
