Hello. I am programming a 2d solar system simulation for a game. All went fine until I got to this part. Tried learning it in the past 3 days but could not understand most of it. Hoped to find help hhere.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have the location of both planets, their mass, their initial velocity and thats it. How do i calculate their location in each point in time? Thanks.
