Description:

This web page is an interactive physics problem relating to circular motion. It simulates a common physics demonstration involving identical masses on a horizontal turntable located at different distances from center. The initial question asks which mass will slide off the turntable first, as the rotation rate increases. As the turntable accelerates, a Frictional force vs. Time graph is simultaneously plotted. An animated free-body diagram is also shown. This item is part of a collection of similar simulation-based activities developed for students of introductory physics.
