Question about input
12/10/05 at 06:28:47
 
Dear Tony ,  
 
I have a question about input in the edit field ...  
In the simulation of the asynchroneous I tried to change the mass of phobos / deimos by a factor of about 5 (input of 5 in the first digit ) . Running I saw Mars disappear . After some repitition I saw that the mass was changed to 5 ( earth mass) .  
What did I wrong ? (tried to input 5,xxxxxxxx-xx) . x= existing value .  
Note : the same method works in the other fields .
 
 
Regards Frank

Are you sure the same method works in the other fields?  It shouldn't.  You can't do math in those boxes.  If you want to increase Phobos' mass by 5x, you'll have to use a calculator to compute it and then type or paste it in the box manually.  You can use any of the mass units you like as long as you're simply multiplying by 5 and not changing the units.  
 
I think this answers your question.  Let me know if it does not.
 
I've tried the Mars satellites at 10x mass and they ejected the satellite.  Please post your findings for your 5x simulation. Smiley
