YP Projectiles - A projectile motion simulator designed for physicsteachers and students.
Version: 1.1YP Projectiles is a projectile motion simulator designed for physicsteachers and students. To simulate a trajectory, the user chooses the initial velocity (magnitude and direction), the vertical displacement component and the gravitational acceleration.

Operating System: Mac OS X
The software then draws theparabolic trajectory and writes its main characteristics: range, maximumheight reached, etc.
During the simulation, it is possible to display three vectors:acceleration, velocity and position, and three graphs: acceleration,velocity and position versus time.
Many trajectories can be superposed inthe same window, in the same scale. YP Projectiles creates diagrams that can be saved as Pict files but all the graphs, trajectories and numerical data may be printed or copied to be used in other software.
