ImplementsIForce

Force simulating a spring force between two particles. This force iterates over each Spring instance in a simulation and computes the spring force between the attached particles. Spring forces are computed using Hooke's Law plus a damping term modeling frictional forces in the spring.

The actual equation is of the form: F = -kd - L) + av1 - v2), where k is the spring tension, d is the distance between particles, L is the rest length of the string, a is the damping co-efficient, and v1 and v2 are the velocities of the particles.
