Item Picture
written by Francisco Esquembre
The Relative Motion on an Elevator model displays the relative motion as seen by two classical observers. The eight-years old kid Pepe Neurons plays yo-yo in an elevator with transparent walls in a shopping mall and his sister, Lola, looks at him from the ground floor of the shopping mall while he does so.  Watch the motion of the kids, the elevator and the yo-yo from either Lola's or Pepe's perspective.

The Relative Motion on an Elevator 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_murcia_mech_RelativeMotionOnElevator.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).
