work, we replace all of the code we have previously created in our drawScreen() function
with following three lines:
world . Step ( 1 / 60 , 10 , 10 );
world . DrawDebugData ();
world . ClearForces ();
world.Step() takes three parameters: time step, velocity iterations, and position iterations.
The time step is how much time in the simulation to simulate on every call. For our applic-
ation, we are simulating 1/60 of a second. The other two parameters set the precision of the
iterationsandshouldbeleftalonefornow. world.DrawDebugData() drawsthe b2DebugDraw
to the Canvas. world.clearForces() is called after every step to reset the physics model for
the next step.
Example 5-20 provides the full code listing for CH1EX20.html . When you test this example,
you will see 50 randomly created balls fall down and bounce off the bottom of the canvas.
Some will bounce around for a long time, others will stop bouncing much sooner. Notice that
balls appear to act the way you would expect balls to act. However, if you look back at the
code we wrote, we did not create any functions for hit detection, angle of reflection, or linear
movement. All of that was handled by Box2D.
