This applet simulates the motion of a single planet around a star. The user can alter the eccentricity and semi-major axis of the orbit, and the velocity of the star relative to a fixed background. The applet can show the acceleration of the planet, and its velocity relative to a stationary observer, or relative to the star. This item is part of a larger collection of physics simulations sponsored by the MAP project (Modular Approach to Physics).
