Graph Matching Motion Model
written by Andrew Duffy
The Graph Matching Motion Model shows the graph of position as a function of time, and the motion diagram, for a particular object that experiences one-dimensional motion with constant acceleration. Using the sliders, try to match the motion of the red object to that of the blue object - this should also get the two position versus time graphs to match. Then, predict what the velocity and acceleration graphs look like, by sliding the end points of the red lines up or down to give correct straight-line graphs.
The Graph Matching Motion 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_vector_graph_matching.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
