How do I figure out if I have a string or an int?
You can use type or isinstance, or (the generally accepted way) is to enclose your code in a try/except block.

How can you analyze the mechanics of a system of connected rigid bodies?
If you have the computation time and energy, you can break it up into as many small parts and organize the individual force vectors on the small things. If there are organization groups that help reduce this, then you can start collapsing things together into larger bodies and larger force vectors.

What happens when an object is declared via the new keyword, versus implicitly?
When "new" is used, space is allocated for the object on heap memory (vs stack memory). This means the object exists out of the local scope, which is great for some uses, but can also lead to memory leaks.
