Instance Property


A property that reduces the body’s rotational velocity.


var angularDamping: CGFloat { get set }


This property is used to simulate fluid or air friction forces on the body. The property must be a value between 0.0 and 1.0. The default value is 0.1. If the value is 0.0, no angular damping is applied to the object.
