Okay, I am trying to find a formula for the position of two bodies (or more) in space based on the initial velocity and time.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm trying to integrate the equation for gravitational acceleration to find the velocity equation, however, the radius is changing, and the degree (theta) is also changing:

Edit:Does anyone know any calculus II and above method to solve this? I can't so far with Calc I
