hey
i want to write a code to calculate the Tidal acceleration in 3 ways
A: Sun and moon in the equatorial plane. Centers of mass of the sun, moon and earth and point P are on a line (center of mass of the earth - P - moon - sun)
.B: Sun and moon in the equatorial plane. The centers of mass of the sun, moon and earth and point P are on a line (P - center of mass of the earth - moon - sun)
.C: Sun and moon in the equatorial plane (as above). Point P is at the North Pole.
i wanted to write a code with case condition but i dont know how to call it, i wanna say if case =A then do this
also i have no idea how to write the vector on Matlab
function [a_t] = gezeitenbesch(G,M_m,M_s,r_e,r_m,r_s)
a_g1 = G*M_m/((r_m)^2);
a_g2 = G*M_s/((r_s)^2);
a_g3 = G*M_s/((r_s+r_e)^2);
a_t1 =a_g1-a_g3;
a_t2 =a_g2-a_g3;
a_t = a_t1+a_t2;
end
% Gravitationsbeschleunigung
G = 6.67408e-11; %[m3/kgs2]
M_m = 7.3483e22 ;% [kg]
M_s = 1.989e30; %[Kg]
r_m = 3.8440*10^8; % [m]
r_s = 1.496*10^11 ; %[m]^3;
r_e = 6378*10^3;
a_t =gezeitenbesch(G,M_m,M_s,r_e,r_m,r_s)
is there any way to plot it ?
thanks

Go through the process described here to know more about switch cases and to use them just have it in your code, need not do anything else like for functions, check for various ways of using vectors here
