Week 6


Topics:


Assignment:

  1. Small angle approximation:

  2. Lunar Pendulum:

  3. A series for period:

  4. Escape velocity: For this investigation use the Kepler ODE in the ODE Equation Library of Phaser. Suppose that a particle of mass = 1.1 is positioned at the coordinates (2.1, 0). For this problem, first you should load the equation defaults for Kepler ODE. Then set the appropriate initial conditions to follow the shapes of the orbits.

  5. R: Go to the web site http://www.r-project.org/ and download the appropriate version of R for your personal computer.
