Simple Circular Motion Model is a simple simulation that explores amusement park rides like a Merry-Go-Round. 

The rotational speed and radial distance are controlled with sliders at the bottom of the applet. 

The controls are "lagged" to reduce the unphysical results of "slamming" the simulation controls.

The net horizontal force on the riders is monitored in the accompanying graph in terms of "g's", that is, in terms of multiples of the rider's weight.
