How does the model distinguish between a "little
push" and a "big push"? Note: this is a very subtle difference
peculiar to this simulation. The big and little pushes have the
same magnitude of force. [note added Sept. 7, 2005]
What point in the distance vs. time graph is the velocity = 0?
What is the value of acceleration at the point where velocity is zero?
Explain the relation between the acceleration graph and the velocity graph.
