written by Wolfgang Christian
The Body with Thruster Model shows the motion of a disk with an attached rocket engine.  You can drag the engine to change its distance from the center of the disk and you can adjust the thrust of the rocket engine using sliders.  The mass of the rocket and its connecting rod are assumed to be negligible. The trajectory of this single-body model is intuitively challenging and difficult to visualize.

The Body with Thruster Model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the ejs_mech_newton_BodyWithThruster.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).
