A 2-dimensional relative velocity problem with an integrated physlet.

Some balls bounce better than others. A particular ball can be characterized by its coefficient of restitution. This java... see more

Java applet for simulating projectile motion.

Ballistics Simulation: Exploring gravity, kinetic energy, potential energy and atmospheric drag using the cannon

This simulation lets users drag masses onto a grid, and plots the center of mass for the configuration. The center of... see more

User draws masses on a grid, and then is asked to calculate the center of mass. User's answer is checked by the applet.

Applet simulates the motion of particles acted upon by a central force. User can choose between attractive and repulsive... see more

Applet shows the path of a particle under the influence of inverse square central force. The force can be attractive or... see more

Demonstrates circular and translational motion of a point when initial conditions (such as the initial velocities and... see more

A tutorial on circular motion, with hyperlinks to subtopics, including animations.

Set of java applets for illustrating classical physics (highschool level), including gravitation, electric and magnetic... see more

From the site: "The most fascinating phenomena of celestial mechanics are revealed in the motions of three or more bodies... see more

Demonstrates how linear and rotation of an object are related.

This Macromedia ShockWave applet illustrates visually the concept of velocity composition by showing the velocity vectors... see more

The lessons posted on this site were designed to engage students with real-world data relevant to content taught in... see more

Introduction to ticker-tape diagrams and vector diagrams. How these diagrams represent velocity and acceleration.... see more

Explains the 4 one-dimensional kinematic equations that describe an object's motion. Relates the kinematic equations to... see more

The meaning of shape and slope for velocity vs. time graphs. Explains the difference between positive and negative... see more

An introduction to the language of kinematics. The focus is on kinematics terms/words (vector, scalar, distance,... see more

A small collection of videos showing objects in motion.  Both Quicktime movies and Flash Vid-Dat files are provided. ... see more
