Physion - Physics Simulation Software

Physion - Physics Simulation Software
Physion is a 2D Physics simulation software. It can be used to easily create a wide range of interactive physics simulations and educational experiments. Teachers may find it particularly useful since it can be used as a virtual physics laboratory through which they can demonstrate some basic physics concepts in the classroom. The user, using the tools of Physion, can create various physical objects (circles, polygons, gears, etc.) and joints (eg. springs, pulleys etc.) that obey the laws of Physics. This way the user can experiment by creating various scenes/scenarios which can be either simple physics experiments or complex structures/mechanisms like the ones shown in the video below Physion also allows the users to execute their own scripts/programs in JavaScript.

DIY solar cell from scratch Like any project there is a shopping list, most of these items are household items or tools, and you will most likely already have them. I recommend vendors on eBay for items like the glass plates and titanium dioxide. - Titanium Dioxide (white powder, often used in make-up)

scripting:introduction [Physion] Physion scripting is based on the ECMAScript scripting language, as defined in standard ECMA-262. Microsoft's JScript, and Netscape's JavaScript are also based on the ECMAScript standard. For an overview of ECMAScript, see Qt's ECMAScript reference. With Physion scripting you can do the following: Getting Started Checklist To use the gogoboard, you should have the following things ready. A GoGo Board together with a USB cable. Batteries or power adapter if using motors. Although the gogoboard can be powered via the USB cable, it is not recommended for use with motors, as the USB port provides only limited power.Some sensors and/or motors.Construction materials such as cardboard paper, wood, ice-cream sticks, string, etc.A computer running any recent version of Windows (Windows 2000 and older have not been tested).

Physics Flash Animations We have been increasingly using Flash animations for illustrating Physics content. This page provides access to those animations which may be of general interest. The animations will appear in a separate window. The animations are sorted by category, and the file size of each animation is included in the listing.

Programming options for kids Cult of Mac has an item about a six-year-old girl named Lim Xin Mei (above) who is learning computer programming. The article says she was using Applesoft BASIC on an old Apple II GS. Later she started using a Power Mac 7200 running an Apple II GS emulator. My 8-year-old daughter likes to write games using Scratch, but I think I should introduce her to a text-based programming language. I thought BASIC would be good language to start with, but then I realized I just wanted to do that because that's how I started programming decades ago. Times have changed.
