Back in June we released the Wolfram Physics I Course Assistant to aid those taking introductory physics classes. We are now releasing the Wolfram Physics II Course Assistant for iOS to help those continuing their physics education.

Wolfram Physics II Course Assistant

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.

Archimedes' Principal Archimedes' principle results

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. Head over to our Mobile Apps page to learn more about this and our other available apps.


How odd that there are no course assistants for Android phones, given the ubiquity of Android.

I agree. The astronomy app would be great on Android.

Please provide Course Apps for Android.

Would be great if these were built using HTML 5 and could be used on devices from companies that actually give their customers a choice of form factors instead of just iOS devices. If they have to be apps then it would be great if you could deliver a Windows Phone version.

Android Please :(

I love how helpful this app is, and I figured it was about time someone actually said something about it other than a complaint about how it’s not on android. Keep up the good work wolfram.

This comment by “John” is right on the spot:

But iOS has a choice of form factors: iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad.
