The necessary formulas for a numerical method of calculation are derived without the use of calculus or other advanced mathematics; an illustrative problem is solved in complete detail; eight different types of impact are discussed; methods are given for taking account of friction, damping, coefficient of restitution, plastic flow, and gravity; branched systems are discussed briefly; methods are given for checking the calculated results.
