Rk4 practical example

  1. May 8, 2013 #1
    Hello,

    I need some examples of practical second order differential equation that can be solved by Runge kutta method. I tried searching on net but couldn't find a satisfying answer. Please help..

    Thanks in advance

    Any initial value problem whose dynamics is described by a second-order differential equation can be used. The simplest I can think of is Newton's equation of motion for a particle acted on by a force.
