This web page is an interactive physics tutorial relating to orbits. The user can set the initial velocity of an orbiting mass and observe the resulting trajectory. The animations illustrate how initial velocity affects the object's orbital path and can result in collision or a break from orbit. Graphs of kinetic energy and gravitational potential energy accompany the animation. This item is part of a collection of simulation-based activities developed for students of introductory physics.
