Ghostly Images JS Package
written by Anne Cox and Laura Fauver
The Ghostly Images Package contains Javascript models for 1D kinematics to illustrate the connection between motion diagrams ("ghostly images") and position-time plots. Simulations include constant velocity and constant acceleration. Developed for the Physical Science classroom.

The Ghostly Images 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.
