Collisions in One Dimension Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
A. Duffy
Post a comment | Relations
The One Dimensional Collision model allows the user to collide two objects and investigate whether momentum and/or kinetic energy are conserved in the collision process. To keep…
Collision between two pendulums  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:

L. Wee, The World Conference on Physics Education, 26 (2012).
A paper from the 2012 World Congress on Physics Education that describes how Singapore teachers have benefited from the OSP community's work. The article describes computer models…
Nine Ball Pool Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
R. Kozlowski
Post a comment | Relations
The Nine Ball Pool Model is set up as a game of nine-ball (nine balls in a diamond formation with a cue ball), and the player may hit the balls in any order. With normal play (the…
Mini-Golf Model  [ Computer Program ]

Byline:
B. Stroup
View comments | Relations
The Mini-Golf Model is a three level putting game that get progressively harder. There are obstacles that the ball bounces off and water hazards that add a stroke to the score and…
Person Landing After a Jump  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
A. Titus
Post a comment | Relations
This lab uses Tracker to measure and analyze the center of mass motion of a person landing after a jump. Students measure the acceleration of the person in free-fall and his…
