if you gradually lower the speed value and a turn value it would look like what you are describing.
like" turn R1 degrees" increase value L1 by -1
turn L1 degress, increase value R1 by -1
repeat until it stops turning

and lower the speed value each time R1 or L1 value is lowered.

forgot to say make sure the R1 and L1 values are the same to start with
like set R1 to 90
L1 to -90
R1 value has to be lowered by 1 at end of a turn
L1 value has to be increased by 1 at end of a trun
until both are 0

try asking @oio he's more into physics.

Thanks. i'm more into entertainment than accuracy-precision like @oio

I can try to help, but first I have to ask to be certain: Do I understand correctly that you want to account for relativistic effects in a tire swinging from a tree... as in, Einsteinian relativity?

Ha. :smile:

Ok... well, the thing is, you're not gonna see any effects. At least not on any tree tire swing that I can imagine.

The common measure for whether you've got a GR effect is (v/c)^2, or (beta)^2. You're gonna have an infinitessimal beta, here. Alternately, the gamma which is one over the square root of (1+beta^2) is not going to be much different from 1, out to many, many, many places.

So, what's the...

Are you looking for length contraction? Mass change? Time dilation?

Does this happen to have anything to do with the slowing of the swing? I think we might be talking about the wrong subject. :slightly_smiling:

That is, I think what you want is a damped harmonic oscillator...
Maybe?

That would also be cool, by the way...

EDIT: Ok, so, not seeing a reply. I need to go take care of some other chores, while you're thinking about that one. If you'd like me to code or to explain a damped harmonic oscillator, let me know. It's not hard.

No problem. I had some stuff to take care of as well. So, if I get it better now, you just want your tire swing to "slow down" (which really means that its amplitude falls). Is that right?


#19

Just like exeleration in gravity, but decreased by different value, and negative
Is that what you mean?
