Computational Physics Machine Problem

  1. Nov 26, 2012 #1
    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?

    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...

    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?
