In these review we shall investigate two scenarios are, one of linear horizontal motion and that of linear vertical acceleration. In traveling through air, the beetle will experience upwards and gravitational force acting downwards. Therefore to estimate the final velocity of the beetle we need to incorporate the drag force due to air resistance and also the gravitational component of the velocity, for the beetle to fall one mile below until it touches the ground. Velocity of the Porsche is easy to determine by empirical and mathematical equations of linear motion. In solving for the freefall velocity of the beetle, we shall make use of the MATLAB high level programming language, which will assist us to compute and display the results. MATLAB programs work hand in hand with various softwares related to programming languages such as JAVA, C++, FORTRAN python, including other windows compatible applications. In these review we shall design for a MATLAB program to calculate the travel time and velocity of two vehicles one moving horizontally while the other moving vertically downwards to cover a distance of one mile (1609m)
In order to achieve maximum retardation, we shall now cause the beetle to fall flat on the wheels exposing maximum area to air resistance; hence the drag force will be highest consequently reducing the velocity of fall.
In order to launch this program starts up, we need to initially enter the time and distance for the Porsche to cover the one-mile stretch .we shall then allow MATLAB to calculate the velocity as a function of the two variables. We shall then calculate the drag force by use of the formulae available for both minimum and maximum conditions that is when the beetle falls nosedive or flat on to the wheels. It is now possible to calculate the mean velocity of free fall using drag force, mass of beetle, and gravitational acceleration given by application of

In this scenario, the instructions are given to the computer to carry out a specific task. In addition, these instructions are provided to the computer according to the rules of the programming language. At the present, there are numerous programming languages, which can be used to develop a wide variety of software applications (Shelly et al., 2005; Norton, 2001).
m represents the breakpoints and coefficients of the spline interpolant on successive subintervals, number of polynomial pieces that constitute spline function and the number of coefficients that represent each polynomial pieces, respectively. z1 provided the integral over the
Also using ‘linewidth’ command boldness of the line can be increased or decreased. The above command results in the following plot.
The new MATLAB command used in this program is ‘conv(x,y);’. According to MATLAB HELP this command convolves vectors x and

By assuming the longitudinal section is a curve it becomes easier to obtain it because it helps map it into a graph. The following specifies the steps
