Can I support my normal teaching with Newton? In other words is there a way to show that the formulas I use for free fall, pendulum etc. work for real time objects?

Hello Gaborba,

Yes, we designed newton to use it in the classroom also.
When you simulate a freefall, you can draw the trajectory of the falling body, and the theoretical curve on the same diagram.

For an example check out the Examples in manual\Freefall.ex file.

Hi,

If my formula is too long  how can I break the line at the middle?

You don't need to do anything special, just press enter when you want to start a new line.
If you want to calculate something more difficult, you can write small scripts.
There's an example in the file Freefall.ex:
Code:
var
  z0 : real;
  a : real;
begin
  z0 := 2;
  a := 9.81;
  result := z0-0.5*a*time^2;
end.
and additional information in the manual:
Usage of Newton in detail \ Newton Interpreter \ Multi-lined expressions
