Rotational Motion

The Rotational Motion Interactive allows a learner to explore the relationship between the angular velocity and the linear velocity for a couple of bugs on a rotating disk. The rotational velocity of the disk and the location of the bugs upon the disk can be varied.

Launch Interactive

Users are encouraged to open the Interactive and explore. The Physics Classroom has not prepared any activities for use with this Interactive. We are confident that teachers who use our website will come up with plenty of great ideas for using the Rotational Motion Interactive and we invite you to share those ideas with us. Please share your ideas on our social media websites (#TPCphint):
