Please justify all of your answers. Problem 1 (20 pts): Sensitivity Analysis Textbook, page, .314, # 5 5. Sensitivity analysis is an important part of the planning of any mission, since the flight hardware will never exactly achieve the required burnout velocity Taking differentials of the energy equation for the departure hyperbola, 5 l 7 l 7 11 (ll 41} :2: m vi 3 —— v“ .._. __. ./_ 2 ix, 2 0 r0 - show that the speed error crossing the activity sphere, dugU is related to the error in the burnout speed, duo, by dvxzm-dvo (lid?)

A dual—spin satellite shown in Figure 5.22, sometimes referred to as a gyrostal, has principal moments of inertia of A, B, and C about the axes b1. b3, and b3.

    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.
