a bit of a lol wow moment

Postby jon_joy_1999 » Tue May 08, 2012 6:00 am

so, I'm in algodoo messing around with a pitching machine. I want to find the center of gravity of the machine, so I can pivot it around that point. from highschool physics, I know that if I hang an object from a hinge, a vertical line from the hinge to the floor will pass through the center of gravity of the object, so I hung the completed object from a hinge, put a laser down where the hinge was, and then hung it from a 2nd hinge, with a 2nd laser, then I moved the object and the laser CoG intersection lined up perfectly with a gridpoint. does Algodoo line laser intersections with gridpoints? if so, kudos Emil! if not, make it so! :D

He probably just had snap to grid on lol. Screen-shot would be useful.

I think it is maybe just a coincidence that it lined up with the grid points.
