Motion with constant acceleration Physics Kinematics
Motion-constant-acceleration.jpg

Overview:

A car moves with constant acceleration.

Digital clocks indicate the time elapsed since the car starts moving and up to the green or red light barrier.

Diagrams illustrate the motion versus time t in terms of:

  • Position x
  • Velocity v
  • Acceleration a

Velocity and acceleration vectors may be displayed.

You may:

  • Vary the initial values of x, v, a
  • Bring the car back to its initial position
  • Stop and resume the simulation
  • Drag the barriers with the mouse
  • Run in "slow motion" mode (ten times slower)


Suggestions:

Change the parameters and predict or analyse the resulting plots.

Experiment with the positive and negative values of v and a.
