Tracker Video Analysis: Air Resistance Documents
The Tracker Air Resistance Model asks students to explore air resistance of falling coffee cups by considering both viscous (linear) and drag (quadratic) models. Students see a video of falling cups and explore dynamical models that are overlayed on the video. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive containing Tracker (video analysis program), movies, and some initial analysis. Double clicking the tracker_air_resistance.jar file will run the program if Java is installed on your computer.
