Potential energy

This simulation shows a single mass on a spring, which is connected to the ceiling. The mass is able to move in 2 dimensions, and gravity operates. Does the motion look random to you? Watch the graph for a while and you...Read more

This simulation shows a single mass on a spring, which is connected to a wall. This is an example of a simple linear oscillator.

You can change mass, spring stiffness, and friction (damping). You can drag the...Read more

This simulation shows a chain of springs and masses with fixed attachment points. The fixed attachment points are moveable by the user, and the right attachment point can be removed entirely.

Students can change...Read more

This simulation shows 2 balls on a roller coaster track. The 2 balls are connected by a spring.

You can change the track shape by clicking a button below. You can drag either ball with your mouse to change the...Read more
