Explore the basic principles of physics solvers and find out what they do well.
- [Instructor] At its core, Kangaroo Physics … and other similar physics simulators are clouds of points … whose locations are updated over and over again in a cycle. … These points are linked together by springs, … forces that are represented computationally … as vectors having direction and magnitude. … In each cycle, the singular calculates new force vectors, … and uses the vectors to update the location of points. … Typically, this loop continues … until the points no longer move, … or move less than some very small distance in each loop. … This is called convergence. … The model is stable. … The sum of all vectors within the model is minimized. … Convergence represents an optimal solution … for a particular set of force vectors. … It's not guaranteed that a model will converge. … If a model is not anchored in place … or forces are not balanced, it is more likely … that the model will explode or fly away. … The simplest example of this is applying … a gravity-type force without specifying a ground. …
