Added by David Fairhurst on Feb 6, 2008

An interactive animation illustrating different factors affecting stopping distances. Click the arrow button to start the car and display a velocity-time graph for the motion. Sliders allow the mass, braking force, initial velocity and reaction time to be altered. Click the arrow button to reset the animation.
