Requires a Wolfram Notebook System

Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.

This simulator launches several particles in varying directions into the same force field. It contains editable settings for wind, gravity toward a point source, and gravity in a constant direction. Forces on the particles are simulated as accelerations, and mass is ignored. The particles do not affect each other, and their paths are entirely determined by the initial configuration.
