Physion - Physics Simulation Software

Physion is a 2D Physics simulation software. It can be used to easily create a wide range of interactive physics simulations and educational experiments. Teachers may find it particularly useful since it can be used as a virtual physics laboratory through which they can demonstrate some basic physics concepts in the classroom.

The user, using the tools of Physion, can create various physical objects (circles, polygons, gears, etc.) and joints (eg. springs, pulleys etc.) that obey the laws of Physics. This way the user can experiment by creating various scenes/scenarios which can be either simple physics experiments or complex structures/mechanisms like the ones shown in the video below

Physion also allows the users to execute their own scripts/programs in JavaScript. This way Physion can be a nice and friendly tool for introduction to programming since the results of the commands  are immediately visualised. For more information on Physion's scripting capabilities please visit the scripting tutorials and scripting reference sections.

Physion has been translated into the following languages: English, Greek, Russian, Japanese, German, Spanish and Indonesian. The software is available both for Windows (XP, Vista, 7) and Linux (x86 and x86_64) operating systems and most importantly it is 100% free
