EAS4510 Homework #8 Solution Note: Chapter 4 of Orbital Mechanics by Prussing and Conway is helpful. #1) P1 is the periapsis position and P2 is the top of the minor axis for an orbit with eccentricity 0.1 e = . Use terminal velocity vectors to show that 1 00 T PQW p vv ⎡⎤ = ⎣⎦ and [ ] 2 T PQW cir =− where (1 ) ) p e v ae µ + = and cir v a = .
