The Ejs Inelastic Collision of Particles with Structure model displays the inelastic collision between two equal “particles” with structure on a smooth horizontal surface. Each particle has two microscopic elements which interact through a massless spring of stiffness k and natural length L. The mass of one of the microscopic elements and the spring length of the connector spring can be changed via textboxes. 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 Inelastic Collision of Particles with Structure 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_oscillations_inelastic.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.
