A Model of a Hydroplane
This is a subsite associated with the parent site called IDEA (Internet Differential Equation Activities). The activity on this page explores the effect of drag in modeling the motion of a hydroplane racing boat using the basic force balancing equation. Interactive Java applet graphing utilities provide visualizations of the results.
