Main Document

1D Kinematics of a Moving Car: JavaScript Model 

written by Loo Kang Wee

This interactive JavaScript simulation illustrates 1D, constant acceleration motion in the context of moving cars. Included are several different examples of constant velocity (a = 0) and constant acceleration and concept tests for students to show and explain their understanding. The simulation can display motion using both images and graphs.

The author also includes learning objectives, inquiry questions, common misconceptions, and worksheets to help instructors use the simulation in their classes.
