armin najarian is on a distinguished road
i have a rigid body and i want to give it an external force in x direction and external torque too.
but an external torque , rotates my rigid body and the question is here.which direction does the force apply to rigid body?
actually i want to apply force in the lenght of rigid body direction at any time. (my problem is transiant)
