LiveGraphics3D Example:
Thing on a Spring



A Mass Point Attached to a Fixed Point with a Linear Spring

This animations shows the motion of a mass particle, which is attracted to a fixed point by a linear force. (The force increases linearly with the distance.) The arrow attached to the particle represents the current velocity.

After stopping the animation with a double click you can move the mass point and/or manipulate the velocity of the mass point.
