Hello Fu-Kwun Hwang. This really helped me. For my finals I chose to make a physics simulation application (in Game Maker 8.0) including brownian motion.

I have tried to get the final formula for v1' with the first two equations but I just can't get it right. Could you maybe send me the the steps you took to get there? That would be great.

I also don't know how to calculate the component of a force (or other vector) in a certain direction so if you could help me with that I would really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

(I don't know if I double posted but I think my first post wasn't processed or something...)

I assume you know how to find vector which connect between center of two particles.
if one is (x1,y1,z1),another one is (x2,y2,z1). then the vector \vec{r} is (x2-x1,y2-y1,z2-z1).
Assume velocity of particle 1 isvec{v}= (vx1,vy1,vz1),
The velocity component in the vector vec{r} direction can be calculated as \vec{v_p}=(\vec{v}\cdot\vec{r})/r^2 \vec{r},where r is the length of velocity \vec{r}=\sqrt{(x2-x1)^2+(y2-y1)^2+(z2-z1)^2}
 
i.e.
 vx1'=((vx1*(x2-x1)+vy1*(y2-y1)+vz1*(z2-z1))/r^2) (x2-x1)
 vy1'=((vx1*(x2-x1)+vy1*(y2-y1)+vz1*(z2-z1))/r^2) (y2-y1)
 vz1'=((vx1*(x2-x1)+vy1*(y2-y1)+vz1*(z2-z1))/r^2) (z2-z1)
 
And the velocity compendicular to vec{r} is \vec{v_n}=\vec{v}-\vec{v_p}

P.S. The inner product between \vec{A} and unit vector \hat{n} will give you magnitude of projection of vector \vec{A} in the direction of \hat{n}=\vec{r}/r, so the component in the direction \hat{n} is (\vec{A}\cdot\hat{n}) \hat{n}

Thanks! that really helped.

Now I just need to understand JS and have a look at the source code Wink

some more error when clicking 'VIEW  ejs xml source'
OOPS! EJS XML file (airplane.xml) does not exists!

download it working correctly though  Cheesy
