Ejs Orbiting Mass on a Cone 3D Model Feature Summary

Type:
Featured Modeling
Title:
Orbiting Mass on a Cone 3D Model
Description:
The EJS Orbiting Mass on a Cone 3D model displays the frictionless dynamics of a mass constrained to orbit on the inside of a cone.  The simulation displays the motion of the masses as well as the effective potential energy.  The cone angle and the total energy and the initial radial position of the mass can be changed.
