Detail Page

written by Walter Fendt
This applet demonstrates the motion of a model car with constant acceleration. The initial position, velocity and acceleration can be varied. Graphs of displacement, velocity and acceleration vs time is traced. Two timers can be placed anywhere along the path of the car to allow the users to make measurements of the motion.

This applet is a part of a large collection of physics applets, available in a wide range of languages.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.4.2 of Java.
