Since the radii of gyration of the space probe are k x = 9 8 R , k y = 5 4 R and k z = R , the probe’s inertia tensor is [ I ]= Mk 2 x 00 0 2 y 0 2 z = 81 64 MR 2 0 25 16 2 0 2 So, the angular momentum vector can also be written as follows. H A =[ I ] ω = 81 64 2 ω x + 25 16 2 ω y + 2 ω z Combining these two equations for H A yields the solution for the components of ω ,v iz . , ω x = 3 32 mV R 81 64 2 = 2 27 mV ω y =
