GravitySimulation constructor

GravitySimulation(
  1. double acceleration,
  2. double distance,
  3. double endDistance,
  4. double velocity
)

Creates a GravitySimulation using the given arguments, which are, respectively: an acceleration that is to be applied continually over time; an initial position relative to an origin; the magnitude of the distance from that origin beyond which (in either direction) to consider the simulation to be "done", which must be positive; and an initial velocity.

The initial position and maximum distance are measured in arbitrary length units L from an arbitrary origin. The units will match those used for x.

The time unit T used for the arguments to x, dx, and isDone, combined with the aforementioned length unit, together determine the units that must be used for the velocity and acceleration arguments: L/T and L/T² respectively. The same units of velocity are used for the velocity obtained from dx.

Implementation

GravitySimulation(
  double acceleration,
  double distance,
  double endDistance,
  double velocity,
) : assert(acceleration != null),
    assert(distance != null),
    assert(velocity != null),
    assert(endDistance != null),
    assert(endDistance >= 0),
    _a = acceleration,
    _x = distance,
    _v = velocity,
    _end = endDistance;
