relation created by Mario Belloni

The Easy Java Simulations Modeling and Authoring Tool is needed to explore the computational model used in the Eratosthenes Model.

Eratosthenes Model covers the same topic as Gnomon Model
relation created by Mario Belloni

The EJS Gnomon model simulates the shadow cast by a gnomon (the part of a sundial that casts the shadow) over the course of a day for any day of the year and any latitude on Earth.
