The applet design by prof Hwang, modified by Ahmed.
Original applet Projectile motion (compare projectiles with different initial conditions!)

The following simulation let you compare projectiles with different initial conditions.
There are 4 different mode:
1. vx: same Vy, different vx (vx0,2*vx0,3*vx0,4*vx0)
2. vy: same Vx, different vy (vy0,2*vy0,3*vy0,4*vy0)
3. v:  same angle,different speed (v0,2*v0,3*v0,4*v0)
4. cta: same speed,different angle(cta0,2*cta0,3*cta0,4*cta0)

You can use mouse to drag red arrow (velocity vector) to change it's initial conditions.

Does projectile fall to the ground at the same time?
What are the distances away from the initial position when projectile hit the ground?
... Enjoy it!

  • Please feel free to post your ideas about how to use the simulation for better teaching and learning.
  • Post questions to be asked to help students to think, to explore.
  • Upload worksheets as attached files to share with more users.
Let's work together. We can help more users understand physics conceptually and enjoy the fun of learning physics!
