Constant acceleration in 1-dimension

This is a simulation of the motion of a ball that is influenced by gravity alone. The ball is either released from rest from a height of 20 meters above the ground, or it is launched straight up from the ground with an initial speed of 20 m/s.

You can see the ball's motion diagram, with the position marked at 0.5 s intervals, as well as graphs of the ball's position, velocity, and acceleration, all as a function of time.
