This web page contains a simulation-based module on projectile motion with or without air resistance.  By controlling the initial velocity, strength of gravity, and drag coefficient of air, the applet promotes understanding of the projectile motion.  The Vectors panel allows display of drag force, gravitational force, velocity, and acceleration vectors.  The simulation's Help provides detailed lessons with related problems/solutions, learning outcomes, and instructions for use.  

This item is part of a larger collection of simulation-based physics modules sponsored by the MAP project (Modular Approach to Physics).
