Newton's cradle twist

Newton's Cradle

Recently, there is discussion about pendulum wave effect produced using the Newton's cradle. There are many YouTube videos about pendulum waves. Having seen some of these "amazing" wave effect, I thought that VRMath2 Editor should be able to produce a fake, but good enough to show the effect of pendulum wave simulation. And here you go, see the 3D simulation below.

Ripple wave

Ripple test

This is my first water ripple experiment. I found a function on Youtube and had a quick experiment. The ripple effect is not perfect but could be a good start for whoever is interested to refine it.

Waves at sea

Sea surface

Following my previous blog about 3D function graphing, I did another experiment to animate the 3D graphs. In this blog, I used the same 3D function f(x,z) = x*z^3-z*x^3 to generate two sets of heights. Then a VECTORINTERPOLATOR (or VECINT) was used to animate this 3D graph. It looks to me like a wave on the sea surface. What do you think?
