When buoyant objects appear in contents, it is helpful in developing contents to express their attributes such as their length, width, weight, and velocity, and the magnitude and direction of regular waves dynamically. Therefore, we verify how the attributes of buoyant objects and the characteristics of waves cause the heaving motion of buoyant objects to change by using the equation of motion used in the naval architecture and ocean engineering. Our research results may help contents developers to develop contents with buoyant objects even if they do not understand the naval architecture and ocean engineering well. We show that we can calculate the motion of buoyant objects dynamically even if the velocity of buoyant objects or the characteristics of waves change dynamically. In the future, we will study how buoyant objects move on the irregular waves, and develop engines for buoyant objects on the real sea.
