2D collisions
3D centripetal motion shows the path of a particle in circular motion in the xy plane and could in addition be made to move along the x - axis or z - axis or both
Air track basic air track with two blocks. You can change the coefficient of restitution, initial masses, and velocities
Atwood Machine
Ballistic simulator (Cannon) Ballistic Trajectory Tutorial
Ballistic simulator this virtual experiment is designed to let the student measure the relation between muzzle velocity (which determines projectile energy), gravitational potential and the effects of frictional drag caused by wind speed blowing opposite to the direction the projectile is moving in
Ballistic Simulator You can adjust the following parameters: muzzle angle, muzzle velocity, gravitational field strength, wind speed
Braking car QT movie

Newton second law experiment Newton's second law, this Java applet simulates an air track glider setup, as it is used for experiments on constant acceleration motion. A gravitational acceleration of  9.81 m/s2 was presupposed
Newton's cradle demonstrates the conservation of momentum and energy
Potential energy potential energy exists whenever an object which has mass has a position within a force field. The most everyday example of this is the position of objects in the earth's gravitational field
Projectile motion projectile motion
Projectile motion projectile motion, illustrates the concept of projectile motion, it emphasizes the effect of gravity on the trajectory of a projectile.  Both cannon balls are deflected from a straight line trajectory by the same amount since gravity affects them the same way. This deflection is given by (1/2 g t2) regardless of the velocity of the projectile
Projectile motion
Projectile motion demonstrates the classic kinematics problem of the flight of a cannonball shot over flat ground
Projectile orbits and satellite orbits
Pulley The model represents the Pulley-Weight mechanism where the position of the weights suspended at two different points can be determined by the weights of the box and the D distance
