An alternative form of the modified pointmass equation of motion
Abstract
The pointmass equation of motion is usually given in the form of an explicit expression for the acceleration U.dot (vector). The modified pointmass equation is obtained by adding yawofrepose terms to the righthand side. These new terms are functions of U.dot (vector) so that U.dot (vector) now occurs on both sides of the equation. In this report, the modified pointmass equation is rewritten in the form of an explicit expression for the acceleration.
