Science of Physics and Electronics are in the strange relation. On one side, Electronics is, certainly, only part and derivative of Physics, and the first cannot exist without the latter. One the other side, in the urban human beings everyday life, day after day there is less room for the simple physics and more room for the complex electronics. Why would I have to think about the boiling process if my electric kettle boils water automatically? Why must I understand the mechanical principles, when I have so cool electronic controllers? People gradually need less of the real-world knowledge of physics and have less opportunities for studying it.
Thats why simple game-like projects like Spring Simulation are so valuable: they return you to ideas and interests of the «simple mechanics». What does the program do? Oh, its so simple and so beautiful: it emulates and draws simple spring pendulum, but it emulates it with precision and accuracy, with accordance to all the real-world physics. You can control in details all the mechanical parameters of the spring, surrounding (even change the gravity!) and graphics (colors, backgrounds and so on).
Where the program can be used? Many situations for example, in school classes (much more visual than the chalk-on-a-board pictures); or at home for your own and your childrens fun and education.
