Easy Projectile Motion is a graphic simulation of two types of projectile motion.
(1) A projectile fired horizontally from an elevation
(2) A projectile fired at an angle from
ground level. The program permits the student to separate the actual motion in the horizontal
and vertical components.
There are three options available when plotting the projectile motion:
(1) Plot horizontal motion only
(2) Plot vertical motion only
(3) Plot both horizontal and
vertical combined motions.
A large variety of exercise problems is provided.
Students can determine the horizontal or vertical positions by calculation, verify their
calculations with the vernier scales in the simulation, and then check their
answers by viewing the correct answers.
