Description:

This web page is an interactive physics problem relating to kinematics. The user is given initial velocity of an object moving at a constant speed, and asked to find when an object starting with a zero speed and nonzero acceleration will catch up to it. The problem is accompanied by a Java simulation that depicts the physical situation. This item is part of a collection of similar simulation-based activities developed for students of introductory physics.
