 PF Patron P: 126 We need to think of a machine problem which we are going to simulate and solve using fortran programming. Can someone please give me an idea on what machine problem to do? Something easy please coz I dont really have much idea about programming. I only know the basics. Thanks :)

What kind of machine? Can you please give us the whole text of the assignment?
 PF Patron P: 126 A problem which we can solve using the numerical methods we've studied. (Derivatives, Integrations, Interpolations.. etc) We will make a program for that problem.

That's still not a very helpful reply, IMO. Can you just simulate a playground see-saw? that's a simple machine...

Or should you simulate a robotic arm, with position feedback and optimized movement through servo motors and position sensors? You need to be much more specific please...
 PF Patron P: 126 Well, what I'm saying is this. We need to make a machine-language programming problem. We will also solve this problem using fortran. Something like this https://wiki.engr.illinois.edu/displ...hine+Problem+1 but more on the topics in Physics.

Can you please define "machine-language"? It has a meaning in a programming context, but I get the feeling that you are asking a mechanical engineering machine simulation question.

The assignment in your link is a simple programming problem, and doesn't involve any mechanical machine context. Can you post the full text of your exact assignment?
