Description:

This Java applet simulates an air track glider, a low-friction device commonly used to study Newton's Second Law of Motion and collisions. A mass sliding on the horizontal track surface is connected by a string to a hanging mass. The value of the two masses and the coefficient of friction can be set by the user. A timer is provided to gather data for the motion of the sliding mass as a function of time. This applet is a part of a large collection of physics applets, available in a wide range of languages.
