Description

OrbitSim HD brings the wonder of orbital mechanics to your iPad. **Featured by Apple as a New and Noteworthy Education app for iPad** **Top 10 Education apps in German App Store in February 2012** Create circular and elliptical orbits around any planet in our solar system using the intuitive touch interface. Watch your orbit in animated motion, plot orbit transfers, and review detailed output data and calculations in this powerful new app. -- APP SUMMARY -- OrbitSim HD is an ideal hands-on learning application for high school or university students studying physics, astronomy, or engineering. The app is based on equations from Newtonian physics and Kepler’s laws and uses this mathematical foundation to calculate a range of orbital parameters and generate realistic animations. The physics of orbital mechanics were first formulated by some of the great minds of the Scientific Revolution - Galileo, Kepler, Newton, and others. Generations of curious learners have been fascinated by the motion of the solar system and the mysterious phenomenon of gravity. With OrbitSim HD, you can satisfy your curiosity and build a practical understanding of the fundamentals of orbital mechanics. -- APP FEATURES -- - Use touch gestures to design orbits around any of the 8 planets of our solar system, as well as the Sun and Earth’s moon - Experiment with 3 modes of operation (basic 2-body orbit, orbit circularization, and Hohmann transfer) - Study detailed output data including orbit geometry, orbital period, specific energy, angular momentum, transfer delta-Vs, and more - Input the apoapsis and periapsis of your orbit in terms of either radius or altitude above the planetary surface - Animate your orbit - play, pause, step forward, step back, adjust the time scale - View degree-by-degree orbit data while your orbit animates - Display input and output data in either English or SI units - Enable or disable a background grid - Orbit overlays for nearby planets and moons - Use the optional text field input mode for precise input values - Select one of 10 different orbiting object images (a satellite, a space shuttle, etc.) to liven up your animation
