GeoGebra animations is designed to show that there are two ingredients to circular motion: centripetal force and forward motion. If one or the other ingredient is missing, the motion will diverge from circular.
These are some side projects that I work on simply because I enjoy tinkering with computers and coding. Most of them have nothing to do with physics and very few of them have any practical benefit.

When my first daughter was born, we were asked by the doctor to track her feedings and her wet and dirty diapers. While there are apps that do this, they are all too complicated! So I did the only logical thing: coded my own simpler app from scratch!(Read more...)
