Creating Circular Motion from Sine and Cosine Curves

Mr. P: Good morning. Let’s start with a dot moving in the y-direction in simple harmonic motion, just like a vertical mass spring system. Flipping Physics If we set the dot in motion at a constant velocity to the right, Bo what sort of function does that create? Bo: That looks just like a sine

Point Particle & Rigid Object Collision – Conservation of Angular Momentum Demonstration & Problem

Mr.p: Good morning. Bo, could you please read the problem and Bobby, could you please translate? “Flipping Physics” Intro I apologize for not wearing safety glasses while performing this demonstration. If this egregious oversight causes you emotional harm, I am sorry. Seriously, I should have worn safety glasses and it was asinine of me not

Common Point Particle Angular Momentum Triangle

Mr.p: Good morning. In our previous lesson we used a wooden board mounted on a Lazy Susan to introduce the equation for the angular momentum of a point particle. “Flipping Physics” Intro Billy, please give us the equation for the angular momentum of a point particle. Billy: The angular momentum of a point particle equals
