The Sliding Down an Inclined Plane model displays an object sliding down on an incline plane. The object can be a box, a sphere, or a car. When the object reaches the bottom of the incline, it can be set to bounce (elastic collision) or stick (inelastic collision). The incline angle and the object's initial position can be changed by dragging. Auxiliary windows show position and velocity data as the object slides.
The Sliding Down an Inclined Plane model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_mech_newton_SlidingOnInclinedPlane.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
