Velocity Code - What are the units?


I would like to use the velocity setting but can anyone explain what measurements it uses (i.e. what does 1 stand for?)

Your help would be really appreciated.

Thank you

Hi @Zahid_Razzak,

My understanding is that velocity is speed/force in a particular direction, and both direction and velocity can be represented by a Vector3 (x,y,z).

In the Javascript API, velocity is set as a Vector3, and this is also true in the Advanced Physics CoBlocks, but for some CoBlocks it’s just set as a number-in-a-particular-direction (e.g. forward), so my guess is this number is speed/force, using the units already set in the CoSpace.

The actual unit, whether unit/sec, is possibly irrelevant.

Maybe @Stefan can provide clarity?

Hi @techleapnz,

I’m pinging @Dmitry on this one as he was working on our physics system :slight_smile:

Hi @Zahid_Razzak ,

It is m/s (meters per second)


Thanks All

Your help is much appreciated. Knowing this will help our little Scientists when trying to plan Forces experiments.

Much appreciated. :grinning:
