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

Posted on August 16, 2010 by


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.



PhET is a collection of online science and math simulations sponsored by the University of Colorado, Boulder. They can be run from any web browser provided Java/and or Flash are installed on your local computer.
