bppb6.iwp

The animation shows a spherical object falling through a fluid with acceleration a = (k/m)v-g. The positive direction is up. The object has an intial position of 0 and is released from rest. The given ..

fallcompare-simulation.iwp

The green ball falls in a vacuum, while the red ball experiences a drag force from the fluid in which it falls. The acceleration of the red ball is a = -g + kv**2, where g = 9.8 N/..

Animate

fallcompare-template.iwp

Simulation of two objects falling from rest in a gravitational field. They experience air drag proportional to the square of the speed. The vertical acceleration is given by: a = -g+kvĀ², where k is termed ..

Animate

hookeslaw03.iwp

A platform (black) is suspended from a fixed support by a rubber band. Weight can be added to the platform. When the red stick is pulled away, the platform with its weight will oscillate vertically ..

Animate

incplane-template.iwp

An object slides down an inclined plane. The angle of inclination of the plane and the coefficient of kinetic friction may be adjusted.

Animate

incplane04.iwp

An object slides down an inclined plane under the influence of gravity and kinetic friction. The plane makes an angle of 30 degrees with the horizontal.

Animate

incplane05.iwp

An object slides down an inclined plane. The coefficient of kinetic friction, which is initially 0, can be changed. The inclination of the plane, the initial x-coordinate of the block, and the initial velocity can also ..

Animate

leaf.iwp

The physical situation for this problem is like that of the falling leaf where the leaf experiences a lift force that is proportional to and perpendicular to its velocity. In this case, we treat the ..

Animate

mass-bppb-3.iwp

The animation allows you to check your calculated results against your measured results for a sphere falling through a fluid. Begin by entering your measurements in Input boxes. For the mass of the ball, enter ..

Animate

projectile-drag-2.iwp

The green projectile is subject to a v-squared drag force. The red projectile is subject to a v drag force.

Animate

projectile-drag-lift-2.iwp

The projectile is subject to a downward gravitational field, a drag force opposing the velocity and proportional to v-squared, and a lift force proportional to and perpendicular to the velocity.

Animate

stopblock01.iwp

An object moving horizontally is slowed by a force of kinetic friction. Adjust the initial velocity so that the right side of the block stops at the right-hand edge of the screen.

Animate

turntable04.iwp

A turntable accelerates uniformly. Three discs are held in place by static friction. In what order will the discs break free?

Animate

turntable05.iwp

A penny on a turntable slides off when the turntable reaches a certain frequency. What is the coefficient of static friction of the turntable? How does the result depend on the radius of the path?
