Trajectory of free fall with different initial speed
« on: February 10, 2010, 05:24:03 pm »
This is a simulation for three particles with different initial velocity ($vy_1=v, vy_2=0,vy3=-v$) under the same gravity $g=10m/s^2$

You can drag the initial position of particles as well as initial velovity (drag the tip of velocity arrow--red )

The number of frames per second can be adjust with slider. (initial value is fps=5, fps=200 is real time case)
