Description

In chapter 3, the student is asked to program the motion of a ball with constant velocity, to plot the position with respect to time of the ball moving with constant velocity, and to simulate the motion of a ball undergoing a constant acceleration (near the surface of the Earth). The student is shown what is happening in a conditional loop. Finally, the student plots the circular motion of a body around an object, using trigonometric functions.
