In my answer on Physics, I tried to embed this animation but it didn't work. Is there any way to embed an animation in a post?

You can embed animated gifs. So, use screen capture software to record the animation and then convert it to an animated gif file.

Sample animation.

Like I did here. :P –  Alenanno Sep 29 '12 at 18:13

We only support a limited number of things that can be embedded in a post. Java applets aren't one of them, so the best you can do is just link to it.

And, quite frankly, due to recent security exploits targeting the Java plugin, you shouldn't even have it enabled in the browser to begin with. :/ –  Tim Stone Sep 29 '12 at 16:35
