Francisco Esquembre, and
The Ejs Rocket Car on an Inclined Plane model displays a car on an inclined plane. When the car reaches the bottom of the incline, it can be set to bounce (elastic collision) with the stop attached to the bottom of the incline. The car consists of the car body, two rotating front wheels, and two rotating rear wheels. The incline angle (in radians) can be changed via a textbox and the rocket's thrust can be changed via a slider. In addition the car can be dragged to its initial position. An introduction to the simulation and questions for students are included. You can modify this simulation if you have Ejs installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item.
