# Chaotic Motion of a Bouncing Ball on a Harmonically Forced Oscillator

Chaotic Motion of a Bouncing Ball on a Harmonically Forced Oscillator

This Demonstration shows the map of the movement of a ball bouncing on a harmonically forced oscillator, depending on the frequency, the forcing amplitude, and the coefficient of restitution. The coordinates of each point are given by the dimensionless velocity of the ball after the collision and by the phase of the oscillator.
