This EJS simulation allows the user to simulate the classical shoot the monkey demonstration. The user can change the initial velocity of the projectile, the positions and aim of the gun, and the position of the monkey.
The simulation 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_ntnu_fkh_projectileNfreefall.jar file will run the program if Java is installed. Ejs is a part of the Open Source Physics Project and is designed to make it easier to access, modify, and generate computer models. They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or EJS.
Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).
