Wolfram Physics II Course Assistant App

The Wolfram Physics II Course Assistant App for iOS is now available! 

The Wolfram Physics II Course Assistant App can help calculate properties of solids, including stress, pressure, and deformation; calculate properties of fluids, including drag, buoyancy, and hydrostatic pressure; and solve a variety of electricity and magnetism calculations.

The app can also perform ray optics calculations, including Snell’s law, lensmaker’s equations, thin lens equation, and more; compute wave effects; and do common thermodynamics calculations, including the ideal gas law and Joule’s first law.

Powered by Wolfram|Alpha, the Wolfram Physics II Course Assistant App is currently available on the iTunes App Store for $2.99.
