Url: http://www.animations.physics.unsw.edu.au/jw/rolling.htm
Creator: Wolfe, Joe
Publisher: University of New South Wales
Description: This is a great site from Joe Wolfe of the University of New South Wales, which includes a tutorial and applet about wheels in physics. It answers three basic questions with animations and graphs: What happens when a wheel rolls?, What part of a train is going twice as fast as the train?, and What part of a train is going backwards?
