written by Shabtai Shpigler
In this video, a short sled is placed on top of a long sled on a horizontal track. The long sled is accelerated by a hanging weight until stopped at the end of the track, and the short sled also accelerates due to the friction between the sleds. The motion of the short sled is analyzed by Tracker in two coordinate systems: (a) origin attached to the track, and (b) origin attached to the long sled.
