Main Document

Ball Toss Data Connection Model 

written by Wolfgang Christian and Doug Brown

The Ball Toss Data Connection Model demonstrates how to send data generated by an EjsS computer model to the Tracker video analysis tool.   The user must adjust the initial conditions and the parameters so that both motions, the computed and the one displayed in the video, match.

The Ball Toss Data Connection Model was developed using the Easy Java/JavaScript Simulations (EjsS) version 5.2 or above.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run Java program (jar file).  The Tracker video analysis program must be installed to use the Data Connection feature.
