A chart for the computation of the gravitational attraction of a right rectangular prism

  • Dezsö Nagy
Article

Summary

The gravity effect of a right rectangular prism is calculated by a graphical procedure. The basis of the calculation is an algorithm for the linear combination of readings taken from a chart which has as ordinates and abscissas the body coordinates of the prism normalized with respect to the depth to the top and bottom surfaces.
