This web page is an interactive physics simulation relating to circular motion. An object on a vertical circular pathway is shown, accompanied by an animated free-body diagram. Users may view the motion in steps to observe the net force as the object changes speed. This item is part of a collection of similar simulation-based activities. See Related Materials on this page for a link to the full index of simulations designed by this author to support first-semester introductory physics curriculum.
