1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Four dogs start running from the corners of a field 100m square. Label the dogs A, B, C, D clockwise in that order. Dog A chases dog B which chases dog C which chases dog D which chases dog A. Here 'chase' means that the direction in which the chasing dog moves is directly towards the dog it chases. All the dogs move at 7m/s. The purpose of this project is to compute their positions as a function of time, display paths, trajectories, and perhaps other interesting aspects. 2. Relevant equations ? 3. The attempt at a solution This is from a MATLAB computing course I am taking. First of all, I am required to get the Differential equations (DE's) of the positions of the dogs. I have no idea how to do this, but I am thinking d(pA)/dt = pB etc. Forgive me, I do not have the time for latex. Here pX donates the position of dog X. Is this correct? ZHow do I break down the x- and y-components of position to give the x- and y- components of the velocity?
