The applet shows trajectories for 12 particles with different cases:
1. All starts at the same location, but different initial velocity
2. All starts with the same velocity, but from different location (r)
3. All starts with the same angular momentumm (r*v=constant), but from different location (r)

You can drag each moving particles to any location with mouse drag and drop.
The velocity of each particle (red arrow) can be changed,too!
