Unformatted text preview: 1. Problem 2.18 on p. 147. (On the area of an orbit) 2. Problem 2.19 on p. 148. (On true anomaly conditions). 3. Problem 2.20 on p. 148. (On ight path) 4. Problem 2.34 on p. 149. (On eccentricity) Further study: Chapter 2 of the textbook has many small problem that you can use to train yourself in computing basic orbits quantities. Page 149 of the current edition is just that. Gettign training in these routine computations. I would encourage you to try a few by yourself. As I mentionned in class, the diculty in learning two-body dynamics is the proliferation of formulas and know which one to apply to solve a given problem. While I will give you further tips in class, practice is really the only mean that transform these results into familar territory. 1...
