This web page is an interactive physics problem on free fall motion. The user is given an object with an initial velocity upwards, and asked to find its maximum height and travel time to strike the ground. The accompanying Java simulation illustrates the situation and may be viewed in steps or in continuous play. This item is part of a larger collection of simulation-based activities. See Related Materials on this page for a link to the full index of simulations by this author developed to support first semester introductory physics curriculum.
