Question: How can the uploaded worksheet be modified to handle a self-propelled object on the carousel?

This worksheet animates the motion of an object (say, a cube which slides frictionlessly) on a rotating carousel. The cube is not self-propelled.

How can the worksheet be modified to handle the combination of the carousel motivated motion and the cube's own generated motion, caused by, say, by a few strategically placed thrusters?

The cube's own generated path could be a straight line, or a curve such as an ellipse. The cube's own motion could have a constant velocity or be accelerating.
