Physlet® Physics Newton's Laws Illustrations JS Package
written by Wolfgang Christian, Mario Belloni, and Jack Taylor
The Physlet® Physics Newton's Laws Illustrations Package contains JavaScript adaptations of Physlet Illustrations from Physlet Physics Chapter 4.  In this package we explain why objects move or do not move using the concept of force.  Students need to interact with the Physlet, but the answers to the 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® Physics Newton's Laws 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.
