print value of q This program yields a ﬁnal r value of about 0.208, a total time of 0.478, and a
ﬁnal θ value of 5.35 rad ≈ 306◦ . Concerning the general dependence of these three
quantities on m, M , g , and r0 (the initial r value), dimensional analysis says that The velocity is y = a2 (2t − T ), so the action is
