First let’s picture a nonmoving planet on the left. The speed of the craft at points a and b remains the same at 40km/s . If we now picture a moving planet, the velocity of the craft in our reference frame is the vector sum v = v c + v P at any point. If the velocity of the planet is 30km/s draw and calculate the total velocity (magnitude and direction) at points a and b.
