The goal is for students to practice finding and classifying equilibria of a one-variable system in this modeling context while also introducing variables defined on a restricted domain (the circle).

This project uses very basic physics, Newton's Second Law of Motion, to model the motion of a sprinter running down a track. The model is driven by data from the world record race of Usain Bolt in the 2008 Beijing Olympic games. In particular, we derive the classic Hill-Keller model for a...
