Frequency Dependence

 

time step (dt):
calculations per time step (noc):

The time step determines the time between data points in the graph.  This time step is broken into smaller integration intervals by specifying the calculations per time step parameter, noc.

The frames per second, fps, parameter determines how often a calculation is performed in real time.  Most  computers produce smooth animation if this value is set to 10.  The simulation will advance the interval animation time by dt*(noc) whenever a new frame is calculated.
