Description:

The GR Kerr Exploding program simulates orbits of objects released in an explosion in the equatorial plane of a rotating black hole using the Kerr metric. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the gr_kerr_exploding.jar file will run the program if Java is installed. The default setting is an explosion with an initial velocity of 0.9 and an r-coordinate value of 3.0 near a black-hole at the origin with angular momentum parameter, J/M = .75. GR Kerr Exploding is part of a suite of Open Source Physics programs that model aspects of General Relativity. Other programs provide additional visualizations. They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or General Relativity.
