Show individual forces for:     Mass 1 Mass 2 Mass 3 Mass 4

Worksheet for this simulation by Jim Kernohan of Milton Academy (July 7, 2024)

Click-and-drag to move the particles around, and use the sliders to change their masses. These particles interact via gravity, so you can see the net gravitational force on each one as well as the individual gravitational forces.
