Bungee Jump JS Model 

written by Michael R. Gallis

The Bungee Jump JavaScript Model is a JavaScript implementation of the Java version of this same model. In this simulation, a bungee jumper is dropped from a tower with a fixed length of bungee cord. The simulation operator can control the height of the tower, the stiffness of the bungee cord (determined by its spring constant k), the unstretched length of the bungee cord and the jumper's mass. The player buttons are the play/pause button, the rewind (to t=0) button and the reset button (resets all parameters to initial values). The operator may optionally display the forces acting on the jumper and a plot of the g-forces versus time. Note that the simulation measures the altitude in terms of the location of his feet, thus he hits the ground if his feet get within his 1.7m of height to the ground.

The Bungee Jump JavaScript Model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EjsS) version 5.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run html page and requires only a browser with JavaScript support.  It is also distributed as an ePub.
