What is an Euler’s Disk?

A.K.A The Oiler’s Disk

[By staff reporters]

A Euler’s Disk is a scientific educational toy, used to illustrate and study the dynamic system of a spinning disk on a flat surface (such as a spinning coin), and has been the subject of a number of scientific papers.

The apparatus is known for a paradoxical dramatic speed-up in spin rate as the disk loses energy and approaches a stopped condition.

Potential Energy: In physics, potential energy is the energy that an object has due to its position in a force field or that a system has due to the configuration of its parts.

Kinetic Energy: In physics, potential energy is the energy held by an object because of its position relative to other objects, stresses within itself, its electric charge, or other factors.
