Re: [Question #698985]: Plotting force, unit question.


Question #698985 on Yade changed:

    Status: Open => Answered

Karol Brzezinski proposed the following answer:

I think that you should be consistent with units and use meters for the
dimensions of the box, spheres, tool. The forces acting on the tool
originates mostly from gravity. Your dimension is three times too big,
thus mass is overestimated nine times. Mass influences the vertical
load, load influences frictional force, etc. In the end, you get the
results too big 1e9 times.

Best wishes,
