Description:

The Ejs Torque Free Top model displays the motion of a top, in both the space frame and body frame, with no net toque applied. The top has an initial angular speed in the x, y, and z directions. The moments of inertia in each direction, and the initial angular positions and angular speeds can be changed via textboxes. You can modify this simulation if you have Ejs installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting “Open Ejs Model” from the pop-up menu item. Ejs Torque Free Top 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 ejs_ehu_rigid_bodies_free.jar file will run the program if Java is installed. Ejs is a part of the Open Source Physics Project and is designed to make it easier to access, modify, and generate computer models. Additional Ejs models for rigid body dynamics are available. They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Ejs.
