Note to the students of the JavaFX with Passion! course: Please run and examine the code for the examples referenced in this post. The next "extra credit" assignment may use concepts contained in these examples ;-)
Vaibhav Choudhary has compiled some JavaFX samples from his previous blog posts into one post. Some of them use formulas from a physics textbook to simulate gravity, etc.
Thanks, Vaibhav, for these fun, instructive, examples!
