Main Document

Dynamic Trajectory Visualizer Model 

written by Wolfgang Christian and Mario Belloni

The Dynamic Trajectory Animator allows instructors to create two-dimensional single-particle Newtonian dynamics models for teaching.  Instructors set two functions, Fx(t) and Fy(t), and the model displays the position-space particle motion as well as position, velocity, and acceleration graphs and tables.  The customized simulation is then saved with associated curricular as a new jar file that can be redistributed.

The Dynamic Trajectory Animator 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_newton_TabletopProjectile.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
