An Analysis of a Video Game
Allain, Rhett; Williams, Richard
Physics Teacher, v47 n2 p115-117 Feb 2009
Suppose we had a brand new world to study--a world that possibly works with a different set of principles, a non-Newtonian world. Maybe this world is Newtonian, maybe it isn't. This world exists in video games, and it is open for exploration. Most video games try to incorporate realistic physics, but sometimes this does not happen. The obvious approach is to look at the source code for the game, but this would not allow students to apply analysis techniques.
