## Website Detail Page

These web pages display and explain position, velocity and acceleration for an object moving in one dimension. The student is able to experiment with the conditions of two objects and see how they move through motion diagrams. Note that, because this is one dimensional motion, the author does not consider the vector nature of the velocity and acceleration.
