PHYSICS OF A BEYBLADE
Transcript of PHYSICS OF A BEYBLADE
By- Vishaal Prasad
Beyblade is a brand name for a line of spinning top toys .
They were released by Takara Tomy, a Japanese toy company, in 2000.
Both the toys and their name were inspired by Gustavo Murcia.
The Beyblade toy line went on to be one of the most popular toy lines in the world from 2000 to 2005.
THE BEYBLADE GAME
All Beyblade battles take place in a special arena called a Beystadium.
In a Beyblade battle more than one top launches into a stadium, and the last top spinning is the winner.
Each stadium has its own abilities that will help or hinder the blades during the matches.
The toys usually include a 'launcher' – a device for bringing the spinning top up to speed.
The 'ripping' action causes the tops to be ejected, at the end of the movement.
Players eject the tops into a plastic arena where they subsequently strike each other.
When we spin a top on a flat surface, we will see it's top end slowly revolve about the vertical direction. This process is called precession.
As the spin of the top slows, the precession gets faster and faster. It then begins to bob up and down and finally falls over.
A rapidly spinning top will precess in a direction determined by the torque exerted by its weight.
The Beyblade is able to balance on its axis because the spinning motion causes equal amounts of precession to be applied to either side of the Beyblade.
If your buddy's Beyblade smashes in to yours, this balance will be destroyed and your Bey will begin to slow down or crash.
PARTS OF A BEYBLADE
The Face bolt holds the Beyblade together. It has a small icon of a mythical creaturon it and it comes in different colors.
The Clear Wheel determines the spin and the spin direction.
The Fusion Wheel determines attack power. It determines the blade's effect when it impacts against its opponent, as this is normally the first part to come into contact with the opposing blade.
Determines height of Beyblade and how the Beyblade reacts when it gets hit under the fusion wheel.
Performance Tip (Bottom):
The Performance tip determines how the Beyblade spins and also affects its movement pattern. It determines the direction of the Beyblade's rotation; either clockwise (right) or counterclockwise (left).
Angular momentum is a measure of the amount of rotation an object has, taking into account its mass, shape and speed.
It is a vector quantity.
Angular momentum L = p x r, where r is the radius vector and p is the momentum.
The top continues to spin and remain upright because when an object is spinning, it possesses angular momentum.
It is a measure of how much, a force acting on an object causes that object to rotate.
Torque= Force x lever-arm distance
The Beyblade is released by pulling the winder or the rip cord to make it spin.
When pulling the rip cord from the launcher a force is being exerted on the Beyblade. This twisting force is torque.
Newton’s First Law of Motion (Inertia)
The Beyblade is initially at rest and will remain at rest until an external force acts on it.
When you let your Beyblade rip you set the spinning top in motion.
The reason that the bey will stop is because of friction and air resistance.
Newton's Second Law of Motion
If the bey has a lot of mass, it will require more force to accelerate.
If you want the bey to move fast, you have to apply more force.
The slower Beyblade loses to the faster one because it had less acceleration.
The smaller top looses to the bigger one because it has less mass.
If the smaller Beyblade is given more acceleration it puts up a better fight.
Newton's Third Law of Motion
A Beyblade continues on its path until it is hit by another.
When one Beyblade hits another one, both of them will exert forces on each other and move in opposite directions.
The constant rubbing of the bottom of the Beyblade against the floor (or the Beystadium) and air will eventually cause the Beyblade to stop - if your opponent doesn't knock your Bey out first.
Beyblades are designed such that the only part of the Beyblade that touches the ground is the tiny bottom part.
This reduces the friction or rubbing that could slow the Beys down.
Law of Conservation of Energy
Before release, the Beyblade is at rest and it possesses potential energy.
The release of kinetic energy makes the Beyblade to spin.
When the Bey spins it encounters friction and its kinetic energy is transformed to thermal energy.
An object traveling in a circle experiences an outward force known as the centrifugal force.
It depends on the mass of the object, the speed of rotation, and the distance from the center.
The Beyblade remains upright because the centrifugal force pulls outward on the Beyblade and keeps it perpendicular to the horizontal axis of the ground.
