can i do this with OpenGL?

for my uni final year project ive got to create a visual environment to demonstrate a mathematical model of a cars handling.

can i do this with openGL?

where do i start?
is it easy to use?
how much?

any help you could give to this complete beginner would be appreciated


opengl is not a scenegraph api. it gives you the possibility to light, cull and draw triangles delivered by a scenegraph lib or whatever. there is no possibility to let opengl do physic calculus or object interactions for you.

you should look for a scenegraph library like SGL, Genesis … there are so many open source projects around … and work with it.
