Predicting Turning Points for Toy Cars
1.D. P. Wick, and M. W. Ramsdell, “Modeling the motion of a toy car traveling on an arbitrarily shaped track,” Am. J. Phys. 70, 670–679 (July 2002).
2.Blackboard Optics Accessories: Magnetic Mount (SE-9195) or Suction Mount (SE-9196), available from PASCO scientific.
3.Roller Coaster System (ME-9812), available from PASCO scientific.
4.The inclusion of additional effects such as track curvature and air resistance is discussed in Ref. 1.
5.In this treatment, which assumes a single point of contact, the instantaneous displacement of the center of mass is equivalent to the instantaneous distance over which the friction force acts. For a nice discussion of some subtleties regarding friction, the reader is referred to Serway and Jewitt, Physics, 6th ed. (Thomson Brooks/Cole, Belmont, CA, 2004), pp. 199–203 and Arnold B. Arons, Teaching Introductory Physics (Wiley, New York, 1997), pp. 135–136.
