This page features animation that shows a frictionless ball
rolling down an inclined plane. Visit this site and vary the
launch angle and launch velocities. How does air resistance
affect the maximum range?
Uniform circular motion is described using vectors in a GIF
animation. Visit this website and explain how this motion
result in a force? Physics
