Simultion of Solar System, including Sun and 7 planets
Introduction and Purpose
The purpose of the program "VB Planet3d" is to simulate the Sun and 7 planets:
To get a copy select: VB Planet3d.zip
To read more about the software of this program select: VB Planet3d program
For technical background data select this link: Contents of This Document
From this display go to the bottom left corner and below Support information select the link: E book
Start reading the E book below the line: The Reality, Now and Understanding in HTML format or select this link: now_index.htm
Please read: highacc.htm This paragraph explains what is done to perform the simulations with a high accuracy
Please read: chapter5.htm Chapter 5 explains the details how the simulation of the planet Mercury is performed.
IMO the whole E book is very interesting. Unfortunate it is not possible to execute the programs in the way as was original intended.
The program consists of 4 Forms: Control, Display, Menu and Figure
- The Control Form is used to select a planet simulation and to perform a simulation.
- The Display Form shows the results of a simultion and the result of a simulation saved in a Data Bae
- The Menu Form is to select additional parameters used by a planet simulation
- The Figure Form is to select a simulation saved in a Data Base
Control Form - Operation
The control form is used to select and perform a simulation.
The control form is also use to display a certain set of saved simulations.
- First select a particular simulation to be performed.
In the example this is simulation 7
- Next Select Start
- Next the simulation will show the Display Form as shown in Figure 2
Those saved simulations are called figures or subtests.
The control form is also use to perform the simulations which are saved in a data base.
- First select the Figure Selection Menu.
- Select the Figure to be displayed
- Next Select Start
- Next the simulation will show the Display Form as shown in Display 5
- First goto Parameter Selection Display
- Select SubTest and return back to Control Form
- Select Command Creation
- Select View Commands. This will show all the necessary parameters.
- Select Command Excution
- Next Select Start
- Next the simulation will show the Display Form as shown in Display 2
Display Form - Operation
To observe all the 7 planets select this: VB Planet3d planet displays
The Display Form is divided in 5 parts
- A header section which shows general information.
- One box showing specific data for each of the planets. In this case this are 7 planets.
- one box showing specific data for each of the planets. Column 6, with the indication endc, shows the number of revolution. Row 3 with the value 331 shows the number of revolutions of the earth.
- one box showing specific data for each of the planets. Column 4, row 1 with the value 532,099 shows the total forward angle of the planet Mercury.
- The box at the bottom shows specific data about the planet Mercury.
Column 4, row 7 with the value 532,099 also shows the total forward angle of the planet Mercury.
Display 3 shows 2 (pairs) of lines. The vertical axis is the angle. The horizontal line is the time.
The time of the calibration point is 100 years. The calibration point is the point where both pairs of lines meet.
- The actual forward angle of the planet Mercury. This are the (pais of) lines with the slope.
- The average forward angle of the planet Mercury. This are the horizontal (pairs of) lines.
Angle of average point = Angle of corresponding actual point * time of actual point / 100
Display 3 shows two displays:
In fact the influence of the planet Jupiter is the most important of all the planets.
- When the display is not selected the display shows a simultion of the Sun and 7 planets.
The forward angle of Mercury is 533,17 degrees.
- When the display is selected the display shows a simultion of the Sun and the planets Mercury and Jupiter
The forward angle of Mercury is 155,22 degrees.
Menu Form - Operation
- 4 Delta time Defines delta t in seconds of each iteration
- 6 V origin Defines the speed of the Sun in our galaxy in km/sec.
- 7 Phi origin Defines the angle in degrees of the speed of the Sun in our galaxy
- 8 Display contion Defines the number of iterations before the "Display Form" is updated
Figure Form - Operation
