The Animations ware working well in different readers:
... best in ibooks (on Mac)
... in calibre and epubreader for firefox there are "blank pages" in beetween ...
.
and the pictures in the Section
Applications of Critical Damping

Factors that affects the damping coefficient b includes the drag in the oscillating spring-mass system that takes energy out of the system as heat loss etc.

therefore, the higher the viscosity of the medium the system is in, the greater the drag coefficient b.

1)    Car suspension

are missing!

Great workflow!

greetings from germany!

thank you for the feedback.

i have tried to fixed the missing pictures
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/44365627/lookangEJSworkspace/export/SHM20150217lookang.epub

i used the older EJS_5.1_150125 to compile and should be good.
EJS_5.1_150210 has some errors in the output models which paco is working to fix.

let me know if you see more issues.


enjoy!

Great,

.. nearly all issues are fixed - even in the Browser (epupreader in Firefox)
.. also the blank pages disappeared :-)

The only picture, that is missing is in this Text passage:


"Example

The displacement of a spring mass system from a fixed point is as shown. From the graph, determine the ..."


Well done!

Best wishes!

final simple harmonic motion chapter. please help report bugs, suggestions improvements ideas etc
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/44365627/lookangEJSworkspace/export/SHM_20150227ibook.epub

i have submitted to iBook store, should be available next in 24 hours :)

i have documented some of my journey here and someone may be interested to do their own epub to iBooks.
http://weelookang.blogspot.sg/2015/02/ibook-store-errors-when-passing-epub3.html

it is very slow (dec to jan for version1, feb to make version 2 for iBook) to make it compliance to epub3 standards, this is only for very resilient people :)
