List? Goals and Overview Newtonian mechanics allows for prediction of the motion of particles once the following pieces of information are given: An inertial frame The initial state of the particle (position and velocity) The forces acting on the particlere (i.e., the interaction of the particle with the rest of the universe). This lecture aims at providing an overview of the main “natural” forces acting on a spacecraft and the associated modeling.
