Minecraft Physics is Serious Business

 

So by now you have probably tried your hand at redstone circuits, and more likely than not, you have become completely overwhelmed at the complexity of the system. Well, that is nothing compared to the feeling you will get from watching this video:

Anyway, this may not be for you, but it is still good to appreciate the world that is set up to create your own experiments. But much like you may have asked in a math class during high school, what application do these concepts have? Well, you can basically use these rules of Minecraft to create your on cannon that can launch blocks, figure out the air time of that block, find out the distance that the block will travel when shot at an angle, get an approximation of the vertical acceleration, and much more.

This seems like a lot of work, doesn’t it. Well, not to worry, because the die hard fans of Minecraft have done all of the work for you (mostly) by developing formulas that work within the game.

Anyway, this rabbit hole goes much, much deeper, so if you are interested in viewing complex diagrams and formulas derived from the physic of Minecraft, then you should visit this site. Note: you will need to have a base knowledge of physics symbols to understand any of it.

So, what do you think?
