Curling animation and collision/recoil question

  1. Feb 15, 2008 #1
    if some one has seen this animation, in this animation, the "sliding rock" curl opposite in the direction of the sliding rock. My question is, if this sliding rock is placed in a surface other than the ice surface, then what's the direction of this rock. If the Torus is placed in the ice surface, will this torus not deflect along the path of the "sliding rock".

    link is here for this animation, "Curling"
