These video lessons accompany Chapter 2 (Forces) from The Nature of Code book.
What is a Force29 Jul 2015
This video discusses the definition of a “force” as well as an overview of Newton’s 3 laws of motion.
Applying a Force29 Jul 2015
This video covers how to apply a force to a moving object in Processing. These forces are “made-up” values and don’t yet involve more complex formulae (coming soon!)
Simulating with Mass29 Jul 2015
This video shows how to add mass to your object for a simulation with shapes of different sizes.
Friction Force30 Jul 2015
In this video, we cover how to simulate friction in code.
Drag Force30 Jul 2015
This video covers a drag force in Processing. A drag force is when an object comes into contact with a liquid or gas (air resistance, fluid resistance, also called a “viscous force”)
Gravitational Attraction30 Jul 2015
This video covers attraction forces (modeled after gravity) between objects.
