## Summary:

- What is the best package to make visualizations and simulations of classical physics equations and particles

Hello, I am looking for something to simulate/visualize simple particles and classical physics equations, preferably moving in real time

-Able to turn matrices/functions into geometric representations(visualize sphere, visualize a cylinder etc.)

-Can do the classic ball bouncing between walls animation

-Can do a charged ball moving in an electric field

-Can do a cannon-ball falling in gravity, possibly with air resistance

-Possibly make simple statics simulations, f.ex. using beams with a certain elastic modulus and breaking point.

I am not looking to do super advanced plasma physics, I just want to be able to the visualize classical physics and engineering mechanics. I want to have the power of programming though, but I don't want to have to program everything from the ground up, such as the graphics packages and so on.

R

C++

Python

Matlab(i don't really want to pay though)

What do you think is best, what packages or libraries do you recommend?
