appearance is rather plain, it works well, and cleverly presents a topic not
easily described by text. The physics appears to be correct (e.g., momentum is
conserved, energy is conserved when it should be), even in the limits.
Calculations are done only to about 5 significant figures, so the velocity
values can be off somewhat after many collisions. There are minor grammatical
problems in the text, particularly in subject/verb agreement. Overall this
applet has a good potential to be effective in teaching the concepts of
collisions in different reference frames. Its effectiveness for self-study could
be substantially enhanced by including assignments or suggested items for
students to look at.
