Cont. numerical solution to gravity

  1. Jun 16, 2015 #1
    I believe I am misunderstanding the equations I must use for the Runge Kutta of an orbit in polar coordinates.
    What differential equations can i use which will allow me to numerically determine both an object's distance and angle in an orbit, dependent on time?

    Are you talking about a two body problem?
