Roberto Pérez, and
The Tea Cups Ride JS Model shows the motion on an amusement park ride. The 200 kg cups and the 80 kg riders are free to rotate around their center of the cup. The ride platform and cup platform are driven by motors (shown in green) but the motion of the riders about the cup center is not driven. Click on a cup to seat a person there before clicking Play/Pause to run the ride. The ride accelerates for some seconds, then stays at maximum angular speed (of the attraction and the platforms) and then slows down until stopping.
