Ballistics and Orbits Model
written by Cleon Teunissen
The EJS Ballistics and Orbits model displays ballistic trajectories near the Earth. The model shows the trajectory with respect to the inertial coordinate system and the trajectory as seen from a point of view that is co-rotating with the Earth.
You can examine and modify this simulation if you have EJS installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting "Open EJS Model" from the pop-up menu item.
The Ballistics and Orbits 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_nl_teunissen_ballistics_and_orbits.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
Additional information about this model can be found by visiting the author's web site: http://www.cleonis.nl/index.htm.
Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).
