Model of a Carousel
- You can investigate circular motion with Walter Fendt's simulation Model of a Carousel by changing the variables and observing the resulting motion. Be sure to choose the option "Carousel with forces"--the red arrow gives the direction of the net force, which is the same as the direction of the acceleration.
