Use your mouse to click and drag the yellow cut angle in the top block.

The corresponding normal stress σ_n and shear stress 𝝉_n at the cut are calculated and displayed at the bottom.

Input Axial/Longitudinal Force Fx (in N)

Cross-Sectional Area: Circular Radius (in mm) OR Square Side Length (in mm)

1. Write down the equations for σ_n and 𝝉_n in terms of Fx, Area, and Cut Angle.

2. Using the equations from Part 1, determine which Cut Angle gives max 𝝉_n.

3. Test your answer to Part 2 by trying a variety of Cut Angles in the simulation.

4. Model any Cut Angle in the simulation. Given your inputted Fx, Area, and Cut Angle, verify your hand-calculations for σ_n and 𝝉_n.

5. Input different Radius values to investigate how increased Radius affects σ_n and 𝝉_n.

6. Input the same magnitudes for "Radius" and then "Side Length" to see how cross-sectional area shape affects σ_n and 𝝉_n.

## Simulation of flooding in new orleansA not-very-accurate simulation of the flooding in new orleans. |

## AtmosphereA simple demo of a simulation of an atmosphere. It looks quite cool, but there's not a lot you can do with it yet, and the physics isn't yet all that accurate. |

## Atomistic Simulation of MetalsThis presents an interactive simulation of atoms making up a nanoscopic particle of metal. |
