Chapter 2 introduces Java syntax and EJS elements in the context of simulating the motion of falling particles near the Earth's surface.  A simple Euler algorithm for solving first-order differential equations numerically is discussed and this algorithm is shown to produce errors when compared to an analytic solution.

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