Translation / cable car HTML5
This animation can be used to illustrate such concepts as translation, velocity, acceleration, and uniform and non uniform motion along a straight line.
Click and drag the mouse on the screen to create a vector which you can move to illustrate the translational motion.
Click and drag on the screen to create a vector then drag it around the plane.
- To illustrate the notions of translation, velocity, acceleration and rectilinear motion.
- To perform average velocity calculations.
The trajectory of a point is the curve (even a straight line is deemed a curve) that dscribes its motion.
An object is in translation if all object points follow a parallel path. The…
