The main goal of this demo is to show how you can improve your visualization and understanding of a dynamic system that has simple second order differential equations but complex to visualize due to switching between them. By using 3D animation, you can get a much better understanding of the deformation of the ball.
The zip file contains:

1. PDf document: This walks through the modeling equations for free fall , the collision and the deformation.
2. The mdl file contains the Simulink® model that represents the above equations. We use Embedded MATLAB® to model contact and collision equations.
3. The WRL file contains the 3D world built with V-Realm Builder.
