These pages aim to give enough physics information to allow physical objects to be simulated by a computer program.
|Statics||Situation where forces are in balance.|
|Kinematics||Kinematics: The study and description of motion, without regard to its causes, including position, orientation, velocity, angular velocity, acceleration. For example, we can calculate the end point of a robot arm from the angles of all its joints. Alternatively, given the end point of the robot arm, we could calculate the angles and settings of all its joints required to put it there (inverse kinematics - IK).|
|Dynamics||Covers the causes of motion in terms of properties like mass and inertia. Including movement in free space, rotation of solid body, Inertia, Energy and Momentum, Collision, Impulse and Spring, mass, damper model|
|Table Top Physics||Gives examples and thought experiments to illustrate some of the problems and complexities that we need to solve|
