Join the Knowledge
Interactive PhysicsTM, the award-winning educational
software from MSC.Software, makes it easy to observe, discover, and
explore the physical world through fast-paced, exciting simulation.
Working closely with physics educators, the Interactive Physics
software team has developed an easy-to-use, visually appealing
program that greatly enhances physics instruction.
Create any experiment imaginable with an easy-to-use interface
Interactive Physics allows you to model, simulate, and explore a
wide variety of physical phenomena, and create nearly any experiment
imaginable. If you can use a mouse, you can use Interactive Physics.
Create objects by drawing circles, blocks, and
Measure velocity, acceleration, force, energy,
etc., in metric or English units
Create ropes, springs, dampers, pulleys,
slots, actuators, and motors
Simulate contact, collisions, and friction
Vary air resistance, gravity, or material
View results as numbers, graphs, and animated
Hear and measure sound volumes, sound
frequencies, and Doppler effects
Create visually appealing presentations by
attaching graphics to objects
- Interactivity is key
Interactive Physics is a powerful tool for discovery learning and
helps students visualize and learn abstract concepts. It develops
inquiry skills and physics knowledge by allowing the user to vary
nearly any physical parameter (e.g., gravity, force, speed, spring
constants) and to measure its effect on nearly any measurable
quantity (e.g., position, energy, decibel level).
