Physics 110A: Bonus Goodies
Fall Term, 2012
This is a place where I may occasionally place useful supplemental stuff, sometimes just for fun.
Python programs traj.pyprog and range-angle.pyprog use 4th-order Runge Kutta to integrate the coupled differential equations describing the flight of a spherical object (with drag coefficient 0.5) of given mass, diameter, initial velocity, and angle. You will need Python and matplotlib to actually run this, but perhaps it will be more convenient to re-port to a more familiar language.
