Unformatted text preview: obtained and plot the trajectory resulting from the following initial conditions: H = 600 km Ë™ H = 0 . m/s Î´ = 28 deg and Ë™ Î´ = 0 . deg/s Î» = 10 deg Ë™ Î» = 0 . 06658 deg/s For these simulations, we assume that the Earth radius has a value Re = 6371 km , a mass of 5 . 9736 Ã— 10 24 kg and that the value of the gravitational constant is G = 6 . 673 Ã— 1011 kg1 .m 3 .s2 . Plot the values of H , Î´ and Î» as a function of time, as well as the resulting trajectory in Cartesian coordinates in both the Earth center frame rotating frame ( s 1 , s 2 , s 3 ) and an Earth center inertial frame. 1...
