Get your physics coding on with Cemetech!
Posted by nikky on 3 July 2013, 03:51 GMT

Cemetech Contest #10 is in full swing for the Summer. This time it focuses on Physics: either particle forces, projectile motion, or both! Although game-like programs are allowed, the contest is designed to encourage educational programs to help expand understanding, skills, and comprehension.

Grand prize is a TI-Nspire CX CAS, a TI-84+ C Silver Edition, and secret prizes. Second- and third-place winners will receive a TI-84+ C Edition and secret prizes. With prizes like these, why wouldn't you want to put your physics knowledge to good use? Get 'a crackin' folks!

Weighing in on this...
-I'd like to see a 3D gravity simulator where the user input the number of objects, and specify object size, density, initial position, and orbital degree.

That would be truly impressive. Unfortunately my only calc right now is a TI-81 - due to losing a few boxes moving.

Been years since last post, so special shout out to any old buggers left, esp you Kerm. ;-)

Shout out right back at you. Since you own(ed) the calculators, you could probably use an emulator if you felt like entering the contest...
