Graphs and Tracks Revisited
Christian, Wolfgang; Belloni, Mario
Physics Teacher, v51 n4 p240-241 Apr 2013
We have recently developed a Graphs and Tracks model based on an earlier program by David Trowbridge, as shown in Fig. 1. Our model can show position, velocity, acceleration, and energy graphs and can be used for motion-to-graphs exercises. Users set the heights of the track segments, and the model displays the motion of the ball on the track together with position, velocity, and acceleration graphs. This ready-to-run model is available in the ComPADRE OSP Collection at ID=12023. (Contains 2 figures.)
