YP Rectilinear Motion 1.0 Description:
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.
