I studies advanced physics at school but failed it.

What I'm trying to simulate uses various formulas. I'm simulating a 2
wheeled robot, so there torque within the robot when 1 wheel goes
fater than the other then there's the robot's acceleration, going up
and down hills, collisions etc.

Guess I'll just bite the bullet and read my text books again.

I searched on Google for "newtonian physics java" and got lots of
interesting hits, such as these:

http://www.srcf.ucam.org/nope/
http://www.mathtools.net/Applications/Physics/Java/
http://dmoz.org/Science/Physics/Education/Java_Applets/

This might also help:

Re: REQ: Physics Java Class

Thanks!

Shows how clueless I am. I'd been searching on Google but hadn't
putting the word "Newtonian" in the search.

Cheers.
