This is a simulation for a double stars system in circular motion.

Assume the mass for stars are M,m.
The density is assume to be the same for both stars, so the radius for M will change when M is changed.
The distance between star is d,

The radius for the circular motion are r and d-r,
where M\, r=(d-r)\,m , and \frac{GMm}{d^2}=M\,r w^2=m(d-r) w^2

The black dot is the center of mass (CM) for the binary stars ststem.

  • Please feel free to post your ideas about how to use the simulation for better teaching and learning.
  • Post questions to be asked to help students to think, to explore.
  • Upload worksheets as attached files to share with more users.
Let's work together. We can help more users understand physics conceptually and enjoy the fun of learning physics!
