This simulation shows how two masses connected together by a string move. The simulation is designed to demonstrate circular motion and centripetal force.
Description of this force with links to related topics.
Basic explanation of what forces are, focussing on the subatomic world and including electromagnetic, weak and strong force.
A short explanation of force carriers which are particles responsible for the forces we experience.
Animation of a car travelling around a track, its acceleration vectors (tangential and centripetal) are shown. Initial values for car acceleration and velocity can be varied.
Gravity supplies the necessary centripetal force to hold a satellite in orbit about the earth. The circular orbit is a special case since orbits are generally ellipses, or hyperbolas.
Java Applet simulating the motion of an object rotating on a carousel - demonstrating the Physics of circular motion, and Newton's Laws of Motion.
A brief description of how Roller Coasters work, manipulating inertial, gravitational and centripetal forces in the service of a great ride.. Part of Marshall Brain's HowStuffWorks.com.
A very basic introduction to forces.
A demonstration of multiple forces that acts on an object.
