R.G. Melton AERSP 309 HW #8 Fall 2005 (due at beginning of class Friday Nov. 4) 1. (10 points) A satellite on an elliptical Earth orbit with perigee radius r p,1 = 7532 km and apogee radius r a,1 = 9500 km must execute an impulsive maneuver when it reaches a true anomaly of 85 o . Calculate the ∆ v required to produce a new orbit with perigee radius r p,2 = 7000 km, but without rotating the line of apsides . (Note: this means that, on the new orbit, the true anomaly will also be 85 o ). 2. (10 points) Body A consists of a particle with mass m 1 ; body B consists of three particles, each with mass m 2 , connected by rigid, massless rods of length L . The nearest mass to
