This Demonstration shows the orbit of a point mass through a Hernquist potential, which represents a star moving through a spherically symmetric extended mass distribution with a density profile of the form ... , where ... is the dimensionless radius and ... is the length scale of the potential. This type of mass density has been used to model physical systems such as dark matter halos, elliptical galaxies, and embedded young star clusters.
