Online simulation: 1-D Motion: Position, Velocity, and Acceleration (PhET, UC/Boulder)

August 16, 2010 by

0

Interactive simulation of how position, velocity, and acceleration graphs are made. Learn about position, velocity, and acceleration graphs. Move the little man back and forth with the mouse and plot his motion. Set the position, velocity, or acceleration and let the simulation move the man for you.

Online simulation: Energetics: Kinetic Energy and Gravitational Potential Energy (PhET, UC/Boulder)

Interactive simulation of how kinetic energy and gravitational potential energy trade off as an object moves. Learn about conservation of energy with a skater dude! Build tracks, ramps and jumps for the skater and view the kinetic energy, potential energy and friction as he moves. You can also take the skater to different planets or even space!
