Dynamics of a Sliding Ladder using Tracker
written by J. B. Oliveira, Paulo Carvalho, M. F. Mota, and M. J. Quintas
The Dynamics of a Sliding Ladder video experiment explores the dynamics of a sliding ladder leaning against a vertical wall. An accompanying paper compares a theoretical model to the video analysis and shows that the reaction forces can enter into the dynamics in a complex way, in which the elastic properties of the ladder play an important role.

A Tracker trz file is a zip file that contains both the video clip and analysis information, such a coordinate system and data.  It should be opened using the Tracker program but it can also be opened with standard zip tool to extract the video clip.
