Description:

The Ejs Two Falling Rods model displays the dynamics of two rods which are dropped on a smooth table. In one case the end point on the table slides without friction, while in the other case it rotates about a pivot point. The simulation allows computing fall times and trajectories. The initial angle that the rods are released can be changed via a slider. You can modify this simulation if you have Ejs installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting “Open Ejs Model” from the pop-up menu item. Ejs Two Falling Rods model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_ehu_rigid_bodies_tworods.jar file will run the program if Java is installed. Ejs is a part of the Open Source Physics Project and is designed to make it easier to access, modify, and generate computer models. Additional Ejs models for classical mechanics are available. They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Ejs.
