The STP Sensitivity to Initial  Conditions program shows 11 particles in a line with the same velocity. You can perturb the system slightly and observe how sensitive the trajectory is to a small change. The default perturbation strength is 1.00001.

STP SensitivityToInitialConditions is part of a suite of Open Source Physics programs that model aspects of Statistical and Thermal Physics (STP). The program is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double-clicking the stp_SensitivityToInitialConditions.jar file will run the program if Java is installed on your computer. Additional programs can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, STP, or Statistical and Thermal Physics.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java.
