Kinematics of a Translating and Rotating Wheel Model

The EJS Kinematics of a Translating and Rotating Wheel model displays the model of wheel rolling on a floor. By controlling three variables, the kinematics of the wheel can be changed to represent sliding, rolling with sliding, rolling without slipping, rolling with slipping, and spinning. The translational velocity of the wheel, the rotational velocity of the wheel, and the radius of the wheel can be changed via sliders. (less)

In this lesson, students will study how propellers and jet turbines generate thrust. This lesson focuses on Isaac Newton's 3rd Law of Motion, which states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. (less)

In this physics activity, learners construct a small-scale version of a classic carnival game. A large marble is rolled along a track made from a commonly available and inexpensive metal shelf bracket. The track is gently bent so that there is a flat portion, then a small hill, and finally a steep uphill portion. The objective is to roll the ball so that it goes over the first hill, but does not come back over the hill -- the ball should remain in the dip between the two hills. The process involves nice illustrations of the interplay of kinetic energy, potential energy and friction. (less)

This simulation is a simple model of rides like an amusement park Merry-Go-Round. The rotational speed and radial distance are controlled with sliders at the bottom of the applet, while net horizontal force on the riders is monitored in the accompanying graph in terms of g-force experienced by riders. The 3D formatting allows viewing from a variety of vantage points. Students discover how rotational speed and radial distance interact to create a more thrilling ride. Don't miss the page link to "Physiological impact of g-forces". Students will learn that setting the speed and radial distance at the highest points will result in g-forces that exceed space shuttle re-entry and fighter jets at high speed. <b>See Related Materials</b> for an interactive tutorial on circular motion, appropriate for high school and lower-level undergraduate studies. The Simple Circular Motion Model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the jar file will run the program if Java is installed. (less)
