Apply the Brakes


Applet shows a yellow dot moving to the right. It intially moves with a uniform velocity . The brake button in the bottom panel can be pressed at any time to decelerate the motion of the dot.

The values shown in white in the top gray area are the position and time at the moment the brakes are applied. A small white line indicates this position.

You can change the initial velocity and the acceleration during braking using the controls in the bottom panel.
