Curved spacetime simulation

By Murray Bourne, 30 Jan 2008 has some mind-blowing animations on gravitation as curved spacetime and relativity: movement, time dilation and length compression.

There's also a charged ball simulation where you can create balls and observe their behavior under the influence of magnetic fields.

It's worth a look, especially if you are struggling with physics concepts.

    Here is more General Relativity visualization, based on the same idea as the adamtoons applet:

    @curved_spacetime: Interesting video. Thanks!

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
