(c) Show that, for the asymptotically stable configuration in (b), the second system in (a) becomes a harmonic oscillator problem, and find the frequency of oscillation in terms of I x , I y , I z , and ω 0 . Phobos maintains I y > I x > I z in its orientation with respect to Mars, and has angular frequency of orbit ω 0 = 0 . 82 rad/hr. If ( I x - I z ) /I y = 0 . 23, show that the period of the libration for Phobos (the period with which the side of Phobos facing Mars shakes back and forth) is about 9 hours. 15

CHAPTER 1: Introduction EXERCISES 1.1: Background 2. This equation is an ODE because it contains no partial derivatives. Since the highest order derivative is d 2 y/dx 2 , the equation is a second order equation. This same term also shows us that the independent variable is x and the dependent variable is y . This equation is linear. 4. This equation is a PDE of the second order because it contains second partial derivatives. x and y are independent variables, and u is the dependent variable. 6. This equation is an ODE of the first order with the independent variable t and the dependent variable x . It is nonlinear.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
