written by Fu-Kwun Hwang
This simulation is a collision between two particles in one dimension (along a line). The user can manipulate the collision using sliders to change the mass and initial velocities of the particles. This applet can be used to explore momentum conservation in one dimension.

This is part of a large collection of Java applets covering most topics in introductory physics.
