The Rally Car Jump Model simulates the effect of a rally car jumping off of a ramp as in an X Games event. The simulation make the approximation that the car's rear wheels move along the ramp at a constant speed until the end of the ramp is reached. The rally car experiences a torque, and hence a rotation, when the front wheels lose contact with the ramp. Once the rear wheels also leave the ramp, the rotation rate stays fixed until the car hits the second ramp.
The Rally Car Jump Model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).
