I need to compute numericaly n-body sys. interacting acording to the Weber force:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weber_electrodynamics

and I have a problem with the acceleration on rhs: r'', because the acceleration is unknown, due to the Newton law: F = ma, and we need just 'a' to do next step of integration.

For the standard Newton/Coulomb force there is no problem:

F = k/r^2 r^0; so, we can directly compute: a = F/m = ...

but if a force F depends on r'', this is impossible, because:

r'' = |a| + v_t^2/r, where: v_t is a tangential speed (velocity vector: r' = v = v_r + v_t).

Is it solvable the Weber force - usable in some way?
