written by Wolfgang Christian and Mario Belloni
The EJS Slipping and Rolling Wheel Model shows the motion of a wheel rolling on a floor subject to friction. The simulation allows the user to change the initial translational and rotational velocities of the wheel, v and ω, the mass, radius, and mass distribution, R, m, and C of the wheel. By controlling these variables, the dynamics of the wheel can be changed to show the sliding, then rolling without slipping, of the wheel.  


The Slipping and Rolling 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 ejs_mech_newton_SlippingRollingWheel.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.  The user can modify this simulation if EJS is installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item.

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