Unformatted text preview: NS that represents a sequence of two rotations: a. a copy of the n set is rotated about by an angle to produce set 2 n c . b. then a copy of the c set is rotated about by an angle to produce set 3 c s . 3. Using the data in problem 1, find the angle between the satellites 2-axis and the 2 b Newtonian 3-axis at the time that these data were transmitted. 3 n 4. Show that for a sequence of infinitesimal rotations d about the 1-axis and d about the 3-axis, the final DCM is independent of the rotational order. Hint: use small-angle approximations for sin and cos. Remember that the product of two infinitesimal quantities 0....
