This live script uses the power of Live Scripts to teach students the dynamics of rigid body systems. It provides detailed graphics to illustrate a given system, and allows students to finalize the equations needed to model the system, providing useful, custom error messages if they model the system incorrectly. Students can adjust various values of system using numeric slider bars. The Live Script also makes use of the power of the Symbolic Math Toolbox in its equations, including specifying units for each parameter in the system. Submitted as part of the MATLAB Online Live Editor Challenge 2018.
