Description

Taking introductory physics or need a quick physics reference? Then you need the Wolfram Physics II Course Assistant. This app will help you work through your homework problems, ace your tests, and learn physics concepts. Forget canned examples! The Wolfram Physics II Course Assistant solves your specific physics problems on the fly. This app covers the following topics from Physics II: - Calculate properties of solids, including stress, pressure, deformation, and more - Calculate properties of fluids, including drag, buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure, and more - Solve a variety of electricity and magnetism calculations - Perform ray optics calculations, including Snell's law, lensmaker's equation, thin lens equation, and more - Compute wave effects, including properties of diffraction and thin film interference - Do common thermodynamics calculations, including the ideal gas law, Joule's first law, and more - Look up laws of physics and common physics constants The Wolfram Physics II Course Assistant is powered by the Wolfram|Alpha computational knowledge engine and is created by Wolfram Research, makers of Mathematica—the world's leading software system for mathematical research and education. The Wolfram Physics II Course Assistant draws on the computational power of Wolfram|Alpha's supercomputers over a 3G, 4G, or Wi-Fi connection.

    It's all calculators for specific functions, it doesn't do much in the way of actually helping you learn physics.
  • Sad excuse for a "program"

    The "program" is extremely limited. For example, if you need force, then it only has two slots open for mass and acceleration. It won't help you solve for mass using Ke=1/2mv^2 to get velocity and then to get initial and final velocity and to get acceleration which is what physics is about. Using all the formulas to your knowledge to solve the problem. Don't even think about downloading this program if you need to solve word problems because I'm 100% sure it can not do it. This program should be used for maybe highschoolers but for college level, it is simply useless. There is no flexibility. I expected more from a 3.00$ application.

    This is really overpriced, and has very limited uses. It can't do anything that WolframAlpha can't do. I expect to see more uses for this in future updates..
  • Usefull

    Its a very useful tool when you are in college. Thou I recommend they update the app for new iPad owners.
  • Great

    I purchased this app to go along with a Physics course and every time I attempt to use it, the app crashes. I have contacted the developers and filed complaint and Apple with no response. Please fix this app!

    I'm afraid I just wasted my money on this app. Like the other reviewer found, start screen comes up and the app hangs. This app is non-functional on my iPhone 4S and needs revision. And for the record, it's not working on my iPad either!
  • Crashes frequently

    Nice app layout. Lots of useful info. Crashes like crazy on my iPhone 4s. You probably don't want to waste your money on it.

    There isn't an app. that is this good. I need this app and when I got it I love it. WRA is the best website and you also have some of the best apps. thank you.
