The video below explains the first stage of my Capstone Project, in which I am analyzing the motion of a man traveling through the loop of the Mindbender roller coaster.
After making my last video, I made changes to my marble and car program, primarily so that I could get the motion maps to work and appear when the program was run. The changes are explained in the attached video.
I have started a new program and made progress although I am having some trouble in creating motion maps. I am posting a link to a video which explains the changes I have made and my ultimate goal.
http://screencast.com/t/nNs0SWlaeqlj: This is the link to a video in which I explain how I modified my program to find the point where two trains, one leaving from San Diego and the other from Atlanta at different velocities, collide.
Here is a shorter video in which the colliding cars program previously mentioned is actually run.
The link in this post goes to a video which describes how I made a program in which two cars pass each other in the middle of a track, going in opposite directions at constant velocities. The program also graphs the cars’ positions over time on the same graph. I based this program on one [...]
