Main Document

Physlet® Physics Gravitation Problems JS Package 

written by Anne Cox, Wolfgang Christian, and Mario Belloni

The Physlet® Physics Gravitation Problems Package contains JavaScript adaptations of Problems from Physlet Physics Chapter 12.  This package tests our knowledge Newton's Universal Law of Gravitation using orbital motion. Students need to interact with the Problems, but the answers to the questions posed are are easily determined from interacting with it.

The Physlet® Physics Gravitation Problems Package was developed using the Easy Java/JavaScript Simulations (EJS) version 5.  Although EJS is a Java program, it can create stand-alone JavaScript programs that run in almost any PC or tablet.

Physlet® Physics Gravitational Problems are available in an online AAPT/ComPADRE book.
