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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
