The Tabletop Projectile model simulates the frictionless motion of a ball shot from a tabletop by a spring-gun.  The initial velocity and the table height can be set and multiple shots can be compared.   A separate window shows a position data table.

The 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_newton_TabletopProjectile.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.

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

4. The Physical Setting

4F. Motion
  • 9-12: 4F/H1. The change in motion (direction or speed) of an object is proportional to the applied force and inversely proportional to the mass.

AAAS Benchmark Alignments (1993 Version)

4. THE PHYSICAL SETTING

F. Motion
  • 4F (3-5) #1.  Changes in speed or direction of motion are caused by forces. The greater the force is, the greater the change in motion will be. The more massive an object is, the less effect a given force will have.
