On the left-hand side of the applet window is an overhead view of an object moving in a circle at constant speed. In the center is a side view of the forces acting on the object. Static friction provides the centripetal force needed to keep the object on the curve. The fric-o-meter on the right gauges the ratio of the static friction needed to the maximum available, the latter being determined by the product of the coefficient of static friction and the normal force. This ratio must be less than or equal to 1 for the object to stay on the curve.
