Write your answer cleanly with sentences and diagrams to explain. Don’t forget to write your name on your copy to receive credit. Problem 1 (5pts): On the notion of Δ V Solve problem 6.26, page 383-384 of textbook (current edition). The problem consists of computing the total Δ V given velocities of 3 orbits at the intersection points. Problem 2 (10pts): On plane change Solve problem 6.38, page 388 of textbook (current edition). The problem consists of computing the value of plane change Δ i given the position and and Δ V vectors. Problem 3 (15pts): On apsidal change

Unformatted text preview: Solve problem 6.27 page 384 of textbook (current edition). The problem is about Further study: Further reading on plane changes with simultaneous change in eccentricity would be useful and illustrate the one-impulse transfer cases further. Optional problem 1 (on escape speed): Given an elliptical orbit of eccentricity e and semi-major axis a , compute the minimum Δ V necessary to escape the central body (having grav. param. equal to μ ) when the one-impulse maneuver is performed at true anomaly θ , in the velocity vector direction. For which true anomaly value is this Δ V minimum? Optional problem 2 (on tangential vs. normal maneuver): Solve problem 6.28 page 384 of textbook (current edition). 1...
