Decorating For Christmas 2007

Christmas is a time when you get homesick - even when you're home

Decorating Starts With "Rolling Christmas"

Rolling is a combination of rotation (of a radially symmetric object)and translation of that object with respect to a surface (either one orthe other moves), such that the two are in contact with each otherwithout sliding. This is achieved by a rotational speed at the cylinderor circle of contact which is equal to the translational speed.

Rolling of a round object typically requires less energy than sliding, thereforesuch an object will more easily move, if it experiences a force with acomponent along the surface, for instance gravity on a tilted surface;wind; pushing; pulling; an engine. Objects with corners, such as dice,roll by successive rotations about the edge or corner which is incontact with the surface.
