[ FisicaLab ]

[ FisicaLab ] 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:

The static and dynamic problems are entered constructing the free body diagrams of the objects. Although FisicaLab is easy and intuitive, we recommend you read the documentation first. You can access these files in the option menu Info -> Help (or FisicaLab -> Info -> Help). Also, you can get the documentation in PDF format or read it online (see below).
