Physlet Two-Dimensional Kinematics Illustrations Package
written by Andreu Glasmann, Wolfgang Christian, and Mario Belloni
The Physlet Two-Dimensional Kinematics Illustrations Package contains JavaScript adaptations of Physlet Illustrations from Physlet Physics Chapter 3.  Students need to interact with the Physlet, but the answers to the kinematics questions posed in the Illustration are given or are easily determined from interacting with it. Some Illustrations provide examples of physics applications while others are designed to introduce a particular kinematics concept. Typical uses of Illustrations would include reading assignments prior to class and classroom demonstrations.

The Physlet Two-Dimensional Kinematics Illustrations Package was developed using the Easy Java/JavaScript Simulations (EjsS) version 5.  Although EjsS is a Java program, it can create stand alone JavaScript programs that run in almost any PC or tablet.

Physlet Two-Dimensional Kinematics Illustrations Package:

Covers the Same Topic As Components Vector Model

Changes made:


remade everything from lookang, Fu-Kwun http://weelookang.blogspot.sg/2010/06/ejs-open-source-represent-vector.html
re-used some elements from andreu glasmann, wolfgang christian, mario belloni Physlet Physics illustration 3.1. found in the Davidson College Digital Library for Physlets View the Physlet Two-Dimensional Kinematics Illustrations Package to speed up development as per legally allowed by creative commons attribution, sharelike. i esepcially liked the ability to interact with the vector now, thanks to Prof Paco author of EJS 5.
added ability to animate, thanks to idea from https://www.desmos.com/ and http://www.geogebra.org/
added angle thanks to Prof Fu-Kwun guidance on some other works some years back!
