Students use a swinging gesture to “strike” a virtual ball on a T stand. The virtual ball flies through the space, and its 3D position is plotted in real time. Multiple gravitational fields can be configured with the capability of comparing the behavior of physical objects dropped in the lab compared to virtual objects on different planets. Students explore the impact of gravity, starting height, and starting vertical velocity on the flight of projectiles.
