Graph of G Potential vs. Radius

  1. Nov 12, 2004 #1
    I am looking for a good graph of the curve of radius vs. potential (and total) energy for all orbits, both bound and unbound. Basically I want one that is neat and has a lot of information on it, like where each orbit occurs (all 4), which curves are which energies, and possibly some analysis or signficant other facts about the graphs. I have found this curve in a few textbooks but nothing really pretty.

    Why don't you make one for yourself? With a little knowledge of Newton and Kepler and a decent graphing program you can dazzle your audience and take pride in your own creation! :-)
