Using Matlab to solve for the satellite motion in a central gravitational field(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

F=-GmM r/r2.

Motion is in a plane.Variables are position(x,y),velocity(vx,vy) and accelration (ax,ay).

Apply the leapfrog method.I need the theoretical solution alone to input into Matlab.

Thanks.
