A Classical Force Exchange Simulation A classical force exchange refers to two objects that exchange a massive particle at constant speed. When the particle is “thrown” or “caught” by each object, it exerts an impulse on the object. As a result of this exchange, the objects accelerate away from each other with an apparent repulsive […]

Simulating Exoplanets and Radial Velocity Curves The most prolific method for detecting exoplanets is the radial velocity method. As discoveries are published, they are generally accompanied by data, a set of orbital parameters, and a statistical justification of the conclusions. Using both Keplerian mechanics and Newtonian mechanics, this project used Easy Java Simulations (EJS) to […]
