Car Race Model 

written by Andrew Duffy
supported by the National Science Foundation

The Car Race model allows the classic physics scenario in kinematics of a car with a lead and a constant velocity racing a car with a constant acceleration.

The Car Race 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_vector_addition.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
