This interactive simulation shows an airplane flying at constant horizontal velocity preparing to drop relief supplies to a small island. As captain of the plane, the student must first calculate the release point for dropping the package. As the simulation runs, press the red "+" button at the correct moment to test your answer. The trajectory of the falling package is traced onscreen. If your calculations were too far off, the package will drop in the ocean. The motion can be viewed from the perspective of a person standing on the island or an airplane flying nearby. Extend the learning by activating air friction to see how this variable affects the motion of the projectile.<br /><br />Editor's Note: Students may insist that there is a horizontal force acting upon the package since it has a horizontal motion. See Annotation (below) for an editor-recommended tutorial that will explain what is happening (the horizontal motion of the package results from its inertia).<br /><br />This item was created with Easy Java Simulations (EJS), a modeling tool that allows users without formal programming experience to generate computer models and simulations. To run the simulation, simply click the Java Archive file below. To modify or customize the model, See Related Materials for detailed instructions on installing and running the EJS Modeling and Authoring Tool.
