Users control the atoms in this simulation of particle theory. Adjust the temperature, change the volume of the container and add more atoms to see the effect on pressure.
Simulation app for particle motion, gas law demystified!
"In this simulation user control the atoms. ""Atoms in Motion"" is a fully interactive
atomistic simulation that uses sophisticated Molecular Dynamics (MD) algorithms
to perform computational chemistry calculations right on user's iPad. Such
computational simulations reveal the motions of atoms as they attract, repel, and interact with one another to form unique structures and states of matter.""Atoms in Motion"" is the ideal App to discover and interact with the physics of chemistry and materials. With the tap of a finger users can easily add, delete, or highlight atoms within the simulation. With a gentle touch users can move, place, or even throw atoms. With the swipe of a finger you can control the temperature and
explore the states-of-matter (solids, liquids, and gases). Uncover the physics behind
the ideal gas laws, and perform user's own experiments by changing the volume,
the number of atoms in the simulation, or the temperature. Now as users build and
create experiments, users can easily save, manage, and organized them from within the App. The student edition of ""Atoms in Motion"" uses the same interactive 2-D Molecular
Dynamics (MD) simulation as the original, but is limited to 100 neon (Ne) atoms. The Van der Waals forces are computed using a Lennard Jones 6-12 potential,
and the simulation continuously computes the pressure. Users can vary the
temperature from near absolute zero to over 500K, and add up to 100 neon atoms
to the simulation."
