# Simple one-particle state

type SimpleState = (TheTime, Position, Velocity)Source

A simple one-particle state, to get started quickly with mechanics of one particle.

type SimpleAccelerationFunction = SimpleState -> VecSource

An acceleration function gives the particle's acceleration as a function of the particle's state. The specification of this function is what makes one single-particle mechanics problem different from another. In order to write this function, add all of the forces that act on the particle, and divide this net force by the particle's mass. (Newton's second law).

# One-particle state

The state of a single particle is given by the position of the particle and the velocity of the particle.

The associated vector space for the state of a single particle.

type OneParticleSystemState = (TheTime, St)Source

The state of a system of one particle is given by the current time, the position of the particle, and the velocity of the particle. Including time in the state like this allows us to have time-dependent forces.
