Fun with Physics and SolidWorks

Fun with Physics SolidWorks Motion

I have fun with physics.  I have fun with math.   Your students can have fun too with this SolidWorks Motion Tutorial from our friends in Cuda Country. 

Use SolidWorks to create a Car and Track assembly. Then create a Motion Study using functions: Solve as Flexible, Motor, Contacts, Friction, Gravity, suppress Mates and Calculate.

Fun with Physics Velocity vs Time

Add Linear Velocity Results and Plots to determine the velocity of the car.

Make adjustments and try to go faster – without the car falling off the track.  Great way to apply STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) subjects in one project.  Marie
