Hopping Hoop

Application ID: 114911

This parametrized model can be used to simulate the hopping hoop problem. A rolling ring with a point mass on the perimeter can, under certain conditions, jump up from the surface on which it is rolling.

A more detailed description of this model can be found in the blog post "The Physics of a Hopping Hoop".

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
