hello
great job tnx Wink

plz, I need a  3d simulation of a particle moving on top of a torus surface, the particle can move over any hemisphere  (subject to a gravitational field) and parallel Smiley of the toroid like a simple pendulum able to spin around depending on the total energy.
THe particle has no friction.

I need to set the mass, potential energy, kinetic energy (for both angles gamma and beta), value, and if possible the axial and ring radius.

plz I need the graphs of potential energy vs beta, and a field diagram for momentum beta vs beta

THe purpose of this animation is educational for students to interact with values in order to visualize the movement and describe some situations that can arise

this is for BOgota COlombia,
Tnx so much
 Smiley

Do you mean a particle is restricted to move on a torus surface (inside a torus and always in contact with the surface)?

What is the interaction force between particle and the torus surface? Normal force ?
or Is there another force to keep particle always in contact with the torus surface (it might fall down due to gravity).

Assume the larger radius is R, and smaller radius is r for the torus.
Does z=r \sin\beta, and \tan\gamma=y/x in your case?
I do not understand the meaning of \alpha in the attached picture.
Your problem might be similar to a circular motion in vertical direction , plus a constant angular speed rotational motion (angular momentum is conserved).

The particle is always in contact with the surface, ie never change toroid.
What is the interaction force between particle and the torus surface? Normal force ?
Only normal force
or Is there another force to keep particle always in contact with the torus surface (it might fall down due to gravity).

Assume the larger radius is R, and smaller radius is r for the torus.
Does z=r \sin\beta, and \tan\gamma=y/x in your case?
Yes
I do not understand the meaning of \alpha in the attached picture.
The largest radio is called c and the radius of the ring is not called \alpha, this is called a.
Your problem might be similar to a circular motion in vertical direction , plus a constant angular speed rotational motion (angular momentum is conserved).
If something similar. The treatment of the problem has been with the Hamilton's mechanics. I can send a pdf file, the bad is that this in Spanish.
Thanks from Bogotá, Colombia

If normal force is the only interaction between particel and torus, there is a minimum velocity to keep the particle always attached to the torus surface.
The coordinate of the particle is

x=(R+ r\cos\theta) \cos \phi
y=(R+ r\cos\theta) \sin \phi
z=r \sin\phi

Due to symmetry, \frac{d\phi}{dt}=\frac{2 \pi}{T} is a constant, and due to gravity \frac{d^2\theta}{dt^2}=-\frac{g\cos\theta}{r}

You can adjust mass m (no effect on the motion), both radius R and r with slider.

I am not so knowledgeable about this matter. So i have to learn it. Thanks for the post.
