G is a Gravitation simulator designed for iPad /iPhone created by Oriol Ferrer Mesià. G allows you to quickly experiment the effects of the Universal Gravitation by adding bodies into the simulation, seeing how they react to each other in real time.
The app allows you can change the speed and the value of the Gravitational Constant which factors how strongly each body attracts other bodies. The placement, the mass and the initial velocity of the newly added bodies will dictate how “successful” your system will be. Bodies will collide in G so if one of your bodies hits another body, they will merge into a single body. The physics implemented in G follow “Newton’s Laws of Universal Gravitation“, which states that every massive particle in the universe attracts every other massive particle with a force which is proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.
Luckily you don’t have to worry about the math, just click away and create your play in your own universe. Highly meditative.
