So I'm really interested in orbital mechanics. I'm only 16 so my knowledge of physics is restricted to an intermediate level. If there is a planet with large mass and a planet with small mass they are attracted to each other... So imagine a system where the large mass is fixed and the small object has a constant velocity. How can I model (I'm a big programmer and would like to create a script for this) the path the object takes around the plant. I know this has to do with the balance between the Fg and the velocity... Thank you for any help.
