What is Elasticity?
It is a measure of the rate at which an object can move in response to changes in its position, and is often used to describe how fast an object’s position changes relative to its environment.
The key is to use an object that is moving at the same speed that its environment is moving.
Elasticity is measured as the difference between the speed at which a particular object moves and the speed of the environment.
A typical elasticity number for an object is 1.00.
The more elastic an object, the more quickly it can move.
An example of a simple elasticity function is: x + y * 2 / y = 0.5 elasticity = x + 2 * y = 1.5 The second equation is also called the acceleration coefficient.
The third equation is called the elastic velocity.
An object’s elasticity can be directly expressed as a velocity of the object, or as the speed with which the object moves relative to the environment (see next section for an example of the former).
When an object moves in response the environment, its elasticity is proportional to the difference in its velocity with respect to the environmental velocity.
For example, if we move a bar in the air at 100 meters per second, the bar’s elastic velocity is x = 100 * 10 m / s = 0
