In this study we will consider a dynamical approach to evaluating meteoroid parameters from observational data. The study takes an approach in modelling the fireballs' mass and other properties from the rate of body deceleration in the atmosphere as opposed to conventionally used luminosity. An analytical model of the atmospheric entry is calculated for registered fireballs using published observational data and evaluating parameters describing drag and ablation of meteors and bolides along the luminous segment of the trajectory. One of the special features of this model is the possibility of considering a change in body shape during its motion in the atmosphere
