class geoana.gravity.Prism(min_location, max_location, rho=1.0)#

Class for gravitational solutions for a prism.

The Prism class is used to analytically compute the gravitational potentials, fields, and gradients for a prism with constant denisty.

Parameters
min_location(3,) array_like

(x, y, z) triplet of the minimum locations in each dimension

max_location(3,) array_like

(x, y, z) triplet of the maximum locations in each dimension

rhofloat, optional

Density of prism (\(\frac{kg}{m^3}\)).

Attributes

location
