STUDY OF THE MOTION OF A BODY IN A UNIFORM GRAVITATIONAL FIELD BY MEANS OF COMPUTER EXPERIMENTS
Keywords:gravitational field, parabolic motion of a body, computer experiment, MathCAD.
The article presents computer experiments. They are designed to study the laws of parabolic motion of a body in a homogeneous gravitational field. These experiments are implemented using the MathCAD. A theoretical analysis of the laws of motion of a body in a gravitational field near the Earth, when only gravity acts on the body, is carried out. The laws of motion of the body are studied on the basis of mathematical models and the parabolic nature of its movement is established.
