Think of holding a yo-yo in the air by the end of its string. Move your hand to the left and stop, the yo-yo swings back and forth gradually. I want to try and create this effect in a demo just for fun. So I got 1 vector pulling the yo-yo down.(mass and gravity) And an equal amount of force holding it up.(string tension) It''s the swinging movement I''m not sure how to do. Any thoughts?
