"Walking" Along a Free Rotating Bicycle Wheel (Round and Round)
Güémez, J.; Fiolhais, M.
Physics Teacher, v53 n2 p90-92 Feb 2015
We describe the kinematics, dynamics, and also some energy issues related to Marta mouse's motion when she walks on top of a horizontal bicycle wheel, which is free to rotate like a merry-go-round, as presented recently by Paul Hewitt in the "Figuring Physics" section of this journal. The situation is represented in Fig. 1, which was taken from Ref. 1.
