Unformatted text preview: the following equations into the following columns, using references to cells containing the value for Δ t , v T , g , and m . You can use a time step of Δ t = 0 . 1 v T /g which is one tenth of a characteristic time v T /g describing how long before the eﬀects of drag become signiﬁcant. In step 3 we will investigate the signiﬁcance of this value. The ﬁrst couple of rows in your spreadsheet should look similar to this Figure 13.2: Example of the ﬁrst row of the spreadsheet where the values mg and g reference the cells where these constants have been deﬁned. The value of successive cells in the n th row of data should be calculated from the following formulas: (a) Index: n (b) Time: t n = t n1 + Δ t (c) Exact solution to velocity without a drag force acting: v n =gt n (d) Exact solution to distance without a drag force acting: y n =1 2 gt 2 n 81...
