Two Dimenional Air Drop 

written by Francisco Esquembre
supported by the National Science Foundation

The Two-Dimensional Air Drop model shows a Red Cross airplane planning to drop supplies to a small island.  As captain of the plane, the user must drop the package at the right moment so that it doesn't fall on the ocean.

The Two-Dimensional Air Drop model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the ejs_murcia_mech_TwoDimensionalAirDrop.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
