Hi, this is one the problem on my homework, but I don't know where t start with this problem. We have equation of a particle's potential energy field:
U(r)=-GMm/r+Cm/r^2 C is just a constant. I need to solve for its radial motion and angular motion, then if the motion of the particle is elliptical, what will be the effect of the addtional 1/r^2 potential energy term? Any amount of help will be appreciated!
