FísicaLab

FísicaLab is an educational application to solve physics problems. The problems are set up by adding elements from the palette to a chalkboard and entering the data for each element. The elements are objects such as blocks, pulleys, motors, and forces. It can use the SI and English unit systems, scientific notation, and many conversion factors. The types of problems that can be solved are kinematics of particles (including circular motion), static analysis of particles and rigid bodies in 2D, dynamic analysis of particles in 2D (excluding the dynamics of circular motion), heat, calorimetry, ideal gas, and expansion. The static and dynamic problems are entered by constructing the free body diagrams of the objects.

FisicaLab's funding campaign 01 Mar 2014 07:36

Today I started a campaign to support GNU FisicaLab, the educational free software for physics. With your support, you will help to expand the range of problems to solve in FisicaLab, in adding new features, in the availability in other languages and in many other things. So help FisicaLab to reach 7k at March 31, to give students a chance of get an ethical education with free software. Spread the word of FisicaLab's campaign with your friends, blogs or social networks. Lets education become free (as in freedom). For more info see: http://www.gnu.org/software/fisicalab/

        Release Notes: This release fixes a small problem with the contextual menu of conversion factors. It cleans up compiler warnings with clang. Also available in a binary package for 32-bit GNU/Linux. A configure script has been added. To compile from source, you need the latest stable packages of GNUstep.

        •  03 Oct 2012 06:39

          Release Notes: The conversion factors are now available from a contextual menu. Basic mathematical operations can be done at table entries. There are some useful functions like: cos(), sin(), and hypot(). The module Static of Rigid Bodies has been extended. The module Circular Dynamics of particles has been added.
