Unformatted text preview: Textbook, page 93, # 1 Textbook, page 94, # 5 Problem4 (30pts): Radial burn At an arbitrary point, 1 , in an intial orbit i , a velocity increment Δ V is added in the radial direction. A ²nal orbit, f , is thus achieved. Compare the angular momenta h and the semilatus recta p in the two orbits. Determine the radius in the ²nal orbit at the point that is 180 o in central angle away from point 1 (see Figure 1 below). Figure 1: Setting for Problem 4. 1...
