The Total Velocity property of a Barycenter object represents the Velocity Vector of the barycenter, relative to the Simulation Grid. This property is a 3D vector, with x-, y-, and z-components. Total Velocity is a read-only property that is automatically calculated by Universe Sandbox.

Property Details[edit | edit source]

Location[edit | edit source]

The Total Mass property is located near the top of the Barycenter tab in the barycenter's properties panel.

Units[edit | edit source]

Each component of the Total Velocity can be viewed and edited using the following units:

  • The Speed of Light (lightspeed) = 2.99792458×108 m/s
  • Kilometers per Second (km/s) = 1000 m/s
  • Meters per Second (m/s) is the SI unit for speed
  • Kilometers per Hour (km/h) = 0.2778 m/s
