The tail formation of a comet near the sun leads to the situation in which the comet continually losses a part of its masses so that the mass of the comet decreases monotonically. A comet may also accrete the material encountered along its orbit so that its mass increases. Therefore, the mass of a comet can be regarded as a function of time. In this work we study simulation the dynamics of the orbit of a comet due to the lost of its mass along the formation of its tail and the material
