## The hole through the middle of the Earth – revised transit time

In the previous post in this series I produced a table of acceleration due to gravity against depth from surface, based on the four layers of the Earth (Crust, Mantle, Outer Core, Inner Core), assuming a constant density for each layer. … Continue reading

## The hole through the middle of the Earth – acceleration

In my first go at modelling a ball falling through a hole through the middle of the Earth I assumed constant density, and hence the acceleration at any point was proportional to the distance from the centre. That is of course … Continue reading

## Using the AlgLib ODE (Runge-Kutta) Solver with Excel

Or to be more correct, the AlgLib Cash-Karp Solver, Cash-Karp being a refinement of the Runge-Kutta method of solving ordinary differential equations. Solution of differential equations is an iterative process requiring the repeated application of the solver routine followed by evaluation of … Continue reading
