PDF document and MATLAB script that demonstrates using Cowell’s method to predict orbital motion.

svprint(r, v)
function svprint(r, v)

% print position and velocity vectors and magnitudes

% input

%  r = position vector (kilometers)
%  v = velocity vector (kilometers/second)

% Orbital Mechanics with Matlab


% position magnitude (kilometers)

rmag = norm(r);

% velocity magnitude (kilometers)

vmag = norm(v);

% print state vector and magnitudes
