Item posted by Germán Arias <espectador> on Wed 03 Oct 2012 05:01:23 AM UTC.

FisicaLab (can be pronounced as PhysicsLab) is an educational application to solve physics problems. Its main objective is let the user to focus in physics concepts, leaving aside the mathematical details.

What's new?
============

The interface comes with the following new features:

  • The conversion factors are now available from a contextual menu.
  • Basic mathematical operations can be done at table entries. Also can be used some useful functions like: cos(), sin(), hypot()...
  • A yellow square is drawn around the element whose data is displayed in the table.
  • Leaving the mouse cursor over an element in the chalkboard, its data is displayed in a tooltip.
  • Has been added a preferences panel to configure the chalkboard size (in cells) and the font size in tooltips.

See documentation for more details. For modules has been done the following changes and additions:

  • Circular kinematics of particles: Changes in the entries of some elements. For example the Angular Velocity element now has entries for the initial and final angular velocity.
  • Dynamics of particles: Removed the element Explosion. These problems can be done in the new module.
  • In the modules of Static has been added an element to relate angles.
  • Static of rigid bodies: This module has been extended to allow solve trusses problems. Also there are elements to represent beams of two forces.
  • New module Circular Dynamics of Particles.

See documentation for more details. This new version is also available as binary for GNU/Linux systems of 32 bits and Windows installer. You can get this new version on Downloads section:
