# Some cool gifs of gravity simulation (this time with resistive force)

The gravitating circle

The results are very different when the timestep is $10^{-5}$ instead of $10^{-4}$:

Some other randomised simulations with resistive force

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

These are fun to watch with both attraction and repulsion

Indeed; these collisions are quite nice.

lol i made a corona-transferring simulation where there are multiple circles but they have random speeds and directions and whenever they collide they transfer corona

Haha lmao, that must be fun. Please make a discussion about it so I can see it too! :)

K, I'll make it sometime later. I'm supposed to be in class now lol

r.i.p my class. itis done on June 18 ;c, I like school it is very good. I am going to 9th grade, I AM GOING TO MISS MY SCHOOL !~!
