Main Document

Free Fall Model 

written by Andrew Duffy

The Free Fall model allows the user to examine the motion of an object in freefall.  This is simply one-dimensional motion (vertical motion) under the influence of gravity.

The Free Fall 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 ejs_bu_freefall.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
