written by Wolfgang Christian
The Particle Motion On A Vertical Elliptical Loop model simulates the dynamics of a particle sliding on a track with friction.  The model displays the trajectory of the particle  and the normal, friction, and gravitational force vectors. Units are chosen such that mass m=1 and acceleration of gravity g=1.  In this simulation, the particle changes color and free-falls from the track if the force due to the loop points outward unless the grip option is enabled.  A second window displays the normal force as a function of angle.

The Particle Motion On A Vertical Elliptical Loop model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the  ejs_mech_newton_ParticleMotionOnVerticalEllipticalLoop.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.

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

4. The Physical Setting

4E. Energy Transformations
  • 6-8: 4E/M4. Energy appears in different forms and can be transformed within a system. Motion energy is associated with the speed of an object. Thermal energy is associated with the temperature of an object. Gravitational energy is associated with the height of an object above a reference point. Elastic energy is associated with the stretching or compressing of an elastic object. Chemical energy is associated with the composition of a substance. Electrical energy is associated with an electric current in a circuit. Light energy is associated with the frequency of electromagnetic waves.

4. THE PHYSICAL SETTING

E. Energy Transformations
  • 4E (9-12) #2.  Heat energy in a material consists of the disordered motions of its atoms or molecules. In any interactions of atoms or molecules, the statistical odds are that they will end up with less order than they began?that is, with the heat energy spread out more evenly. With huge numbers of atoms and molecules, the greater disorder is almost certain.
