Graphs and Tracks Model Feature Summary

Type:
Featured Simulation
Title:
Graphs and Tracks Model
Description:
The Graphs and Tracks Model implements the classic simulation by David Trowbridge.  The EJS version allows instructors to create custom configurations for teaching.  Instructors set the heights of the track segments and the model displays the position-space particle motion as well as position and velocity graphs and tables.  The customized simulation is then saved with associated curricular as a new jar file that can be redistributed.
