**Homework #3**: 2.15, 2.17a (no computation), 3.2, 3.3, and computational problems (below) due 02/03/16 at 4pm.

- Using the leapfrog integrator, redo the computational problems from HW #1 and comment on the differences between Euler and Leapfrog in terms of the steps needed.
- Using the leapfrog integrator, model throwing a ball straight up in the air with linear drag. You may set the mass as 1kg, and the origin at 0, but examine what happens with a variety (at least 3 different) initial velocity conditions and a variety of different drag coefficients (at least 3).
