Drag The Monster Truck JS Model 

written by Wolfgang Christian

The Drag the Monster Truck JavaScript Model shows a truck together with a distance, velocity, or acceleration vs. time graph. Use the mouse to drag the rear bumper of the truck to match the selected graph.

One of the most effective methods of describing motion is to plot graphs of distance, velocity, and acceleration vs. time. From such a graphical representation, it is possible to determine in what direction an object is going, how fast it is moving, how far it traveled, and whether it is speeding up or slowing down. How easy is it to move an object so as to reproduce such a graph?
