written by Mario Belloni
The Ferris Wheel Model explores the amusement park ride modeled after Ferris' original wheel.  The simulation shows a wheel that can be varied in radius from 40 m (Ferris' original wheels) to 100 m, or about 10 meters langer than the current world record. In addition, the rotational speed of the wheel can be varied from 10 - 20 m/s. By selecting the checkbox, the free-body diagram can be shown.

The Ferris Wheel 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 jar file will run the program if Java is installed.

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