YP Rectilinear Motion 1.0 reviewDownload
YP Rectilinear Motion is targeted toward physics teachers and physics students.
YP Rectilinear Motion is targeted toward physics teachers and physics students. It allows the user to plot a graph of velocity as a function of time with simple mouse clicks.
The program uses this graph to build a graph of position vs time, and a graph of acceleration vs time, which are displayed in separate windows.
The motion described by these 3 plots can be simulated. During the simulation, 3 vectors can be displayed in the animation window (positon, velocity and acceleration), and the tangent line can be drawn in the position and velocity graphs.
Here are some key features of "YP Rectilinear Motion":
The "Position" window: graph of position as a function of time (the initial position is always zero).
The "Velocity" window: graph of velocity as a function of time.
The "Acceleration" window: graph of acceleration as a function of time.
The "Animation" window: simulation of the motion described by the velocity graph.
Some features are disabled.
