This is my first attempt at using the reactor. Two boxes were created one for the ground and the other for a falling box. A rigid body collection was added and the two box objects added to it.

In the utilities tab I set up the reactor here I adjusted the mass, friction and elasticity for the box and the ground. keeping the mass of the ground at 0 and making the box more then zero meant that the ground would not fall.

Clicking on 'preview in window' button displayed a window that displays the simulation, pressing p plays the simulation. When this is correct the create 'animation button' can be pressed to turn the simulation into keyframes. Then this can be rendered, here is a render of of the box falling.
