Dynamics of the galaxies in the Coma simulation are shown (20 Mpc)^3). We include galaxy formation phenomenologically, therefore galaxies change their properties with time. In this movies the mass of the galaxies are colour coded (blue -> low mass, red -> high mass). Note that in the cluster centre the gravitational potential is deeper than in the outer regions. Therefore galaxies become faster towards the centre, which makes ram pressure stripping more effective.
