Reaction Time Java Applet 


Would you like to measure your reation time? Would you like to estimate how fast you can drive on the highway?

Try this. Just Press ( each clicks to the start button will create a new window)


Your browser can't run 1.0 Java applets, so here's a picture of the window the program brings up:

 


What you need to do: Click the Brake button when the red light turns on. (Not just pressed on it)


Reaction time : the lapse of time between stimulation and the beginning of response.
