Vertical Motion Simulation

This GeoGebra applet by Linda Fahlberg-Stojanovska simulates the motion of a projectile fired either straight up or straight down on Earth in the absence of air resistance. The user sets the initial height and the initial velocity and indicates whether units of measure should be feet or meters. You see the motion of the ball along the vertical axis, while the height as a function of time is plotted for you.
