FisicaLab (can be pronounced as PhysicsLab) is an educational application to solve physics problems. Its main objective is let the user to focus in physics concepts, leaving aside the mathematical details (FisicaLab take care of them). This allows the user to become familiar with the physical concepts without running the risk of getting lost in mathematical details. And so, when the user gain confidence in applying physical concepts, will be better prepared to solve the problems by hand (with pen and paper). The latest release of FisicaLab have the following modules:
- Kinematics of particles 2D.
- Circular kinematics of particles 2D.
- Static of particles 2D.
- Static of rigid bodies 2D.
- Dynamics of particles 2D.
- Circular dynamics of particles 2D.
- Heat, calorimetry, ideal gas and expansion.
The source tarball of FisicaLab can be found on the main GNU ftp server: http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/fisicalab/ (via HTTP) and ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/fisicalab/ (via FTP). It can also be found on the GNU mirrors; please use a mirror if possible.
There are some binaries and additional ways you can download or obtain FisicaLab.
Documentation for FisicaLab is available as PDF.
FisicaLab has the following mailing lists:
- fisicalab-discuss is for general user help and discussion.
Development of FisicaLab, and GNU in general, is a volunteer effort, and you can contribute. For information, please read How to help GNU. If you'd like to get involved, it's a good idea to join the discussion mailing list (see above).
- For development sources, issue trackers, and other information, please see the FisicaLab project page at savannah.gnu.org.
- FisicaLab is currently being maintained by Germán Arias. Please use the mailing lists for contact.
