Ball Toss Video Model

The Ball Toss Video Model demonstrates how embed a video into a JavaScript EjsS model. The simulation superimposes the numerical solution of a ball computed by solving the a differential equation with a video of an actual ball toss. The user must adjust the initial conditions and the parameters so that both motions, the computed and the one displayed by the video, match.

This model requires EjsS version 5.1 or greater.

Sample Learning Goals


For Teachers

This simulation is a simplified version of the Ball Toss Video Model, with the position of the ball fixed at the coordinates (0, 0).

In this simulation, you can adjust the initial velocity and acceleration of both the x and y components of the ball, and the goal is to get the trajectory of the ball to match the trajectory shown in the video.
