An object of the Sound class

The only thing new in Listing 2 is the instantiation of the object of type Sound . As you can see, the syntax for instantiation of a Sound object is essentially the same as for instantiating an Image object.

Add a red sprite

Listing 3 calls the add method of the ArrayList class to add a red sprite to the beginning of the ArrayList object. (Actually it add a reference to that object and not the object itself.)

You are already familiar with the constructor parameters (shown in Listing 3 ) for a Sprite01 object.

Listing 3 . Add a red sprite to the ArrayList object.
sprites.add(new Sprite01( redBallImage,//imagebackgroundWidth/2.0f,//initial position backgroundHeight/2.0f,//initial position(random.nextFloat()>0.5) ? 1f : -1f,//direction (random.nextFloat()>0.5) ? 1f : -1f,//direction 0.1f+random.nextFloat()*2.0f,//step size0.1f+random.nextFloat()*2.0f,//step size 0.5f+random.nextFloat()*1.5f,//scalenew Color(1.0f,1.0f,1.0f)));//color filter

Populate the ArrayList object

Listing 4 uses a for loop and the value of the variable named numberSprites (see Listing 1 ) to add 1000 green Sprite01 object references to the ArrayList object.

Listing 4 . Populate the ArrayList object.
for(int cnt = 0;cnt<numberSprites;cnt++){ sprites.add(new Sprite01(greenBallImage,//image backgroundWidth*random.nextFloat(),//positionbackgroundHeight*random.nextFloat(),//position (random.nextFloat()>0.5) ? 1f : -1f,//direction (random.nextFloat()>0.5) ? 1f : -1f,//direction 0.1f+random.nextFloat()*2.0f,//step size0.1f+random.nextFloat()*2.0f,//step size random.nextFloat()*1.0f,//scalenew Color(1.0f,1.0f,1.0f)));//color filter }//end for loopgc.setTargetFrameRate(targetFPS);//set frame rate }//end init

Listing 4 also sets the target frame rate and signals the end of the init method.

The update method

The overall behavior of the update method is to use a for loop to process the red sprite against each of the green sprites and to take appropriate actions when a collision between the red sprite and agreen sprite occurs.

The update method begins in Listing 5 .

Listing 5 . Beginning of the update method.
public void update(GameContainer gc, int delta) throws SlickException{//Access to the first sprite in the ArrayList object. Sprite01 redBallSprite = sprites.get(0);//Do the following for every sprite in the ArrayList // objectfor(int cnt = 0;cnt<sprites.size();cnt++){ //Get a reference to the Sprite01 object.Sprite01 thisSprite = sprites.get(cnt);//Ask the sprite to move according to its properties thisSprite.move();//Ask the sprite to bounce off the edge if it is at // an edge.thisSprite.edgeBounce( backgroundWidth,backgroundHeight);

Mostly same as before

The code in Listing 5 is mostly the same as code that you have seen before, so further explanation should not be necessary.

Test for a collision

The code in Listing 6 is new to this module. This code calls the isCollision method of the Sprite01 class to test for a collision between the current green sprite and the red sprite.

There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level
no nanotechnology is also a part of physics and maths it requires angle formulas and some pressure regarding concepts

please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
yes that's correct
