Rolling and Slipping Web Assignment No. 1

Web assignment on the relationship between rolling and slipping. Uses an embedded Java applet by B. Surendranath Reddy for convenience. llustrates how angular and linear properties (such as velocity and acceleration) are related.
Course: First semester, introductory physics
