Main Document

Ejs Intro Mechanics Lab Package 

written by Anne Cox, Wolfgang Christian, and Mario Belloni
educational validator: Jacob Brock

The Introductory Physics Lab package contains Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) models used in Introductory Physics Laboratories which ask students to develop a series of models for simple mechanical systems. Ejs, a part of the Open Source Physics Project, is designed to make it easier to access, modify and generate computer models. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double-clicking the ejs_intro_lab.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.

In order to modify the simulations (and see how they are designed), if you have Ejs installed, you can right-click within the simulation window and select Open Ejs Model from the pop-up menu. Information about Ejs (Easy Java Simulations) is available at: http://www.um.es/fem/Ejs/.  

Additional models (including independent copies of each of the exercises contained in this package) can be found by searching ComPADRE for Ejs.
