The Slash-Dot Model simulates a massive line segment and massive point rotating about one another due to gravity in a 2-dimensional plane. The simulation tracks the obits of the line segment (or "slash") and the point (or "dot") with colored trails. It also shows vectors of slash/dot velocity and acceleration and has a histogram depicting force. The white slash and dot are draggable. The orange velocity vectors are draggable: Simply click on the triangle of the arrow and drag around the plane. The longer the arrow gets, the greater the velocity of the slash or dot.
