Create any experiment imaginable with an easy-to-use interface
Interactive Physics allows you to model, simulate, and explore a wide variety of physical phenomena, and create nearly any experiment imaginable. If you can use a mouse, you can use Interactive Physics.
- Create objects by drawing circles, blocks, and polygons
- Measure velocity, acceleration, force, energy, etc., in metric or English units
- Create ropes, springs, dampers, pulleys, slots, actuators, and motors
- Simulate contact, collisions, and friction
- Vary air resistance, gravity, or material properties
- View results as numbers, graphs, and animated vectors
- Hear and measure sound volumes, sound frequencies, and Doppler effects
- Create visually appealing presentations by attaching graphics to objects
Discovery Oriented - Interactivity is key
Interactive Physics is a powerful tool for discovery learning and helps students visualize and learn abstract concepts. It develops inquiry skills and physics knowledge by allowing the user to vary nearly any physical parameter (e.g., gravity, force, speed, spring constants) and to measure its effect on nearly any measurable quantity (e.g., position, energy, decibel level).
