The equation ##\frac{dθ}{dt}=-\frac{usinθ}{r}## is integrable for all v/u>1 after you substituted for r. Use ##\sinθ=2\frac{\tan(θ/2)}{1+\tan^2(θ/2)}## and integral with substitution tan(θ/2) =z. (You can cheat ... with Wolframalpha)

You are simply awesome :smile:

I got the answer :biggrin:. Just when I was thinking that the integral was too much for me ,you plucked out something superb from your bag of tricks .

I had calculated the integral for the special case v/u =2 as told by Chet in post#24 ,but wasn't able to get the general result .

I did the integration as suggested by you without using Wolfram and got the result in a couple of minutes .

ehild...You rock!!!
