Physics isn’t just physics. You have to do a lot of other stuff too — like reading, writing, math, drawing, communicating…and yes…programming.
For me, I prefer to use python. OK, I really like Glowscript VPython. It’s basically python but with some pre-loaded modules that has stuff to handle vectors, 3D objects, graphs and more. Yes, it’s my favorite. Oh, and it runs in a web browser too.
