The Elastic Bounce on an Inclined Plane model can be used to illustrate the adiabatic theorem in classical mechanics. A particle slides without friction along an inclined plane. The particle rebounds elastically when it reaches the end of the plane. The plane inclination varies slowly. The simulation displays the particle motion as well as the phase space. 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.  

The Elastic Bounce on an Inclined Plane model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the ejs_ehu_analytical_mechanics_bounce.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).
