### Sample run of interacting cars -- Labs 5 and 6

By R. P. Futrelle, for COM1101 class, Northeastern U. Posted 2/4/2001.

In this plot, distance increases to the right and time runs down the page.
The 10 cars are labeled A through J. When the cars are very close to one
another, the higher numbered cars overprint the lower. The only unfortunate
thing you'll notice in the run is that car E didn't stop in time when F
stopped, and ends up stopped in front of F. When F resumes, E then falls
into line behind it. Notice that E is always in a hurry and is catching
up with F towards the bottom of the printout. G and I are also trying to
go faster than the preferred speeds of the cars immediately ahead of them
and end up tailgating them. They'd better be careful -- look what happened
to E! (F's lawyers are talking to E's lawyers.) The plot is truncated at the
right, with no printout for cars more than a certain distance along.
