This simulation allows the user to control the motion of a car by means of a velocity dial, i.e., by controlling the car's velocity. The user can visualize the motion in either "position space" or "velocity space". The user can also enable "paths" and vectors to help illustrate the relationship between position and velocity.

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

Please note that this resource requires Java Applet Plug-in.
