Gravity Simulator

this is a gravity simulator

I thought it would be cool to be able to mess around with gravity and experiment, so I made this simple gravity simulator.

Features

  • Scientifically accurate (for the most part)
  • Interactive object placement and deletion
  • Customizable gravity values and object masses
  • Tick warping
  • Hotkeys (G for gravity spot, O for object, and X for delete)

A few notes:

The objects do not collide with each other and instead pass through each other, and the gravity spots are fixed (not influenced by gravity)

Simulation might be a bit buggy on very small screens because of how the scaling works but for the most part it's fine

If you zoom out a ton it's laggy

Why is everyone better at programming than me lol.

@Zavexeon If it makes it any better im not better than you

If you hold an object to two grey spots you'll get a perfect orbit. (Really nice and satisfying by the way. Great job!)

Is this dead yet?

how do control the number of mass

@DJWang open up the settings on the bottom of the toolbar

Why don’t you take this to the next level and make a quantum simulator?

You should try to make a 3D version

When I set the gravity to max, I created an orbit where the blue ball goes around in an oval pattern, but then it moves just enough that it creates a spirograph!! Imagine that? Having a year within a year :D

@JORDANSISNEY Most planets' orbits actually do rotate like how you described.

It is like universe sandbox.

Nice. You should also look into matter.js

WHAT WILL HAPPEN

@MrEconomical Can I feature this sim on a math&physics website that I am building with other people? Our website is https://www.physimx.tech

MrEconomical (2225)

@KobeFF of course! that would be great :)

its the most beautiful thing i have ever seen. been looking at this for hours now

This looks super cool it doesn't look like you used HTML it's just so cool.

Mine won't load. =[ Probably my AWFUL school connection

yo i just made a binary figure 8 :O

Nice. Can you add an option to adjust the length of the trail? I want to see the lengths of my comets!

If only you could eat gravity
