Beach Ball JS Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
M. Gallis
Post a comment | Relations
The Beach Ball JavaScript Model simulates the dynamics of a thrown beach ball. Because of its relatively low mass (compared to its size), subtle effects that are important in sports…

This is a video of an experiment of a falling toast performed with Tracker by first year Physics Majors at Universidad the Oviedo. In the first Tracker file, the motion of the toast…
Car in a loop with friction  [ Report ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
M. Vélez, D. Jalón, D. Maroto, M. Alvarez, and N. Hevia
Post a comment | Relations
The motion of an object in a loop without friction is a classical example of normal acceleration problems with non-uniform circular motion and of energy conservation laws in…
Stick Falling from Table Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
W. Christian
Post a comment | Relations
The Stick Falling from Table Model shows the translational and rotational motion of a stick falling from a table.  The normal and gravitational force vectors and the center of mass…
Swing Ride Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
M. Gallis
Post a comment | Relations
The Swing Ride Model simulates a type of ride that can be found at many carnivals and amusement parks. Riders are suspended from the ends of supports. These supports rotate about an…
Simple Circular Motion Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
M. Gallis
Post a comment | Relations | Standards
The Simple Circular Motion Model explores amusement park rides like a Merry-Go-Round. The rotational speed and radial distance are controlled with sliders at the bottom of the…
Merry Mixer Ride Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
M. Gallis
Post a comment | Relations | Standards
The Merry Mixer Ride Model shows the motion of two superimposed circular motions. The main frame of the ride rotates in one direction, while a second rotation at the ends of the…
