Security note:
Once you have clicked on the "simulation" link below, be sure to read the Java Security Advisory before running the simulation: To do that, click the "Read now" button on the yellow band near the top of the PhET page.

To explore particle trajectories, try PhET: Projectile Motion for a simulation of firing various objects out of a cannon.  You can find out how the angle, initial speed, mass, and air resistance affect the path of the projectile.  This item is part of a collection of simulations developed by the Physics Education Technology project (PhET) at the University of Colorado.
