Problem 2 a) Go through the new propagators manual b) Given initial conditions: a = 78,000 km e = 0.3 i = 23 o RAAN = 0 o = 0 o *= 0 o Using two different propagators and ending at the next periapse: I) Propagator model used: EO (Simple numerical twobody) Stopping Condition Information (Gregorian Date [Julian Date]): 4 Sep 2010 00:13:16.808 [2455443.50922232]: Stopped on: Periapsis; Run Sequence STOP State Vector in Coordinate System: Earth J2000 Parameter Set Type: Keplerian sma: 78000.0000000201250000 km RAAN: 4.030667610869578e-008 deg ecc: 0.3000000000002452 w: 359.9999999589338 deg inc: 23.00000000040826 deg TA: 3.936332800407732e-008 deg Rad.

ii) a = 127,000 km e = 0.5686275 i = 23 o RAAN = 0 o = 0 o *= 0 o Still, there is not much difference in the two orbits. Visually again it’s hard to tell the difference in the final orbits. The labels shown in this figure indicate the slight difference in their positions
