Description:

The GR Schwarzschild Particle program simulates orbits of objects around a black hole using the Schwarzschild metric. It also displays a plot of the effective potential well in which the orbiting particle resides. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the gr_schwarzschild_particle.jar file will run the program if Java is installed. GR Schwarzschild Particle 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.
