Solar System Calculator

(Adam Johnston, Weber State University)


This is a VERY simple javascript routine for scaling your very own solar system.  Just make sure that your Earth is measured in meters, and be aware that all other measures will get spit out in meters.  Maybe later I'll add more sophisticated features and units; or, maybe I'll just use the much more sophisticated calculator found here, on the Exploratorium's web site.

Send me an e-mail with your comments, or just return to my personal home page, the astronomy home page, or the homework solutions (depending on what brought you here).
