can be found on the home page.

User’s Guide

The Equations for Velocity and Acceleration used for the Relative Motion Analysis are:

The various vectors for velocity and acceleration can be viewed as color-coded arrows near the turtle. Change the acceleration for Turtle, Rod, and Bus. The changes in the motion can be noticed in the simulation.

View can customized by the check boxes available under "Vectors" and the outputs can be viewed on the "Outputs" panel.

Animation Control Buttons are placed near the bottom to start, stop and go step by step through the simulation.
