The Ball in a Wedge model displays a ball confined to move between two walls that form a wedge shape. The ball undergoes elastic collisions with the walls of the wedge. The angle of the wedge can be changed by setting the angle with the text box or dragging one of the wedge walls. By clicking in the Poincare section you can set the initial conditions of the motion of the ball. You can modify this simulation if you have Ejs installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item.
