Hi! we have a project to create a GUI of our choice and our group is doing a collisions. We are trying to move the two circles plotted based on the velocity inputted by the user. It has been suggested that we create a position vector and update it in a loop based on the velocity but I am just a little confused about how to go about this. Any thoughts??
