This package contains a physics program on disk, students worksheets, and a teacher's guide which can be used to explore a variety of program options.

This package of computer assisted learning material is designed to enable students to investigate the physics that occurs during two-body collisions by using an interactive computer program.

Collisions allows mass and velocity values to be specified for a two-body collision. Both elastic and inelastic collisions can be specified and the effect of friction upon a collision can be investigated. It is also possible to vary the stiffness of the colliding objects.

Collisions is one of a large number of programs developed by the Computers in the Curriculum Project at Chelsea College for a wide range of subjects in the secondary curriculum.

This program was originally published by Longman Group Limited and subsidized by the Microelectronics Education Programme for England, Wales, and Northern Ireland (Copyright © C.E.T., 1983). The documentation includes portions that have been reprinted with permission of Longman Group Limited.
