Illustration of the beads’ periodic trajectories consisting of straight and circular segments. Positions of the smaller bead number 1 are labeled 1.1, 2.1, 3.1, and 4.1. Positions of the larger bead are labeled 1.2, 2.2, 3.2, and 4.2. Along the straight line segments, beads’ velocities are along the line connecting their centers. Along the circular segments, beads’ velocities are perpendicular to the line connecting their centers.
