Description:

In this simulation, the path of an object in centripetal motion can be followed. The user can add an angular acceleration, and graph the particle's position, velocity, and forces acting on it. The vectors menu offers eight choices plus force components to display a variety of velocity and acceleration vectors. This item is part of a larger collection of physics simulations sponsored by the MAP project (Modular Approach to Physics).
