Noon Shadow Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
W. Christian and T. Timberlake
Post a comment | Relations
The Noon Shadow model shows the geometry of the shadow cast by a gnomon at noon.  Users can change the orientation of the gnomon as well as its latitude.  The height of the gnomon…
Sidereal and Solar Day  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
M. Belloni and T. Timberlake
View comments | Relations
The Sidereal and Solar Day model illustrates the difference between the sidereal and solar day. The planets of our solar system both orbit around Sun and rotate on their axis. These…

A collection of EJS models showing the motions of three or more bodies attracted to one another by gravitational forces. The Java applets on this website allow us to observe…
Kepler System Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
T. Timberlake
View comments | Relations
The Kepler System model simulates Kepler's final theory of planetary motion. In this theory the planets orbit in ellipses with Sun at one focus (Kepler's First law). These elliptical…
Eratosthenes Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
T. Timberlake
Post a comment | Relations
The Eratosthenes model displays the shadows cast by two gnomons (sticks) at different locations on Earth. For one gnomon, Sun is directly overhead (as would be the case if the gnomon…
Local Coordinates Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
M. Belloni and T. Timberlake
Post a comment | Relations
The Local Coordinates model displays the position of a star in local (Altitude/Azimuth) coordinates. The horizon is shown along with the four cardinal directions (N, E, S, and W).…
Equatorial Coordinates Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
M. Belloni and T. Timberlake
Post a comment | Relations
The Equatorial Coordinates model displays the position of a star in equatorial (Right Ascension/Declination --- RA/Dec) coordinates. The horizon is shown along with the four cardinal…
Solar and Lunar Eclipse Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
M. Belloni and T. Timberlake
Post a comment | Relations | Standards
The Solar and Lunar Eclipse model simulates the occurrences of solar and lunar eclipses. Moon's orbital inclination of 5.145 degrees with respect to the ecliptic (the Earth-Sun…
Newton’s Mountain Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
T. Timberlake
View comments | Relations
The EJS Newton’s Mountain model illustrates the motion of a projectile launched from the top of a VERY tall mountain on Earth. The diagram shown in the simulation is taken from…
Earth Orbit Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
T. Timberlake
Post a comment | Relations
The EJS Earth Orbit model illustrates the Copernican theory of Earth's orbit around the sun. The top window shows a view from outside the celestial sphere. The simulation shows the…
