Wolfgang Christian and
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.
