Solar system


This is meant to simulate how a solar system is formed. The masses are moved only by the gravitational force and plastic collisions between them.

How to:

The number you must enter represents the number of initial objects, their maximum random velocity, gravitational strength, size, screen size(for projectors). Play with those numbers until you see a nice result. I got a sun and 2 or 3 planets orbiting around it.

You can zoom in and out with the mouse wheel and move around by click-drag-release.
