Salts: A Sweet App!
The two molecular dynamics simulations from Atoms in Motion are absolutely amazing! Congratulations to the developers for tackling ionic solids – ‘Salts’ is a very useful simulation! It is wonderful to be able to use this in the classroom, and demonstrate atomic motion in real time right from the iPad. Also, a big thank you for the ability to save and name states; I now have over a dozen states that I can effortlessly call up during class. The interactivity, stability, and computational speed are impressive, and the interface is intuitive. While I miss the ability to ‘throw atoms’ and play molecular billiards, I thoroughly appreciate the ability to drag and place atoms within crystals. With patience, I have also managed to build some impressively large crystals of my own. The rock salt crystals are very easy to visualize in 2d, but it would be even better if this simulation could be run in 3d. The inclusion of helium within the simulation makes for some excellent additional teaching points, and the broad temperature range of 1-1,500K allows me to cover a wide range of concepts within one App. All in all, the sweetest app out there - thanks again for the great simulations!
