Problem 1
Solution:
For this problem we must first develop the equation of motion

From Figure P5.3 we can easily see that the model spins down from
10.5 rad/s to zero roll rate when the motor drive is disengaged. This

Homework 6 Solutions
Problem 1
Solution:
a)
Reason#1
Inertia matrix will be time invariant since the mass distribution is not changing in
time relative to the body-fixed reference, also the controls and the measurements
are often defined in this frame.

ATTITUDE REPRESENTATION
Attitude cannot be represented by vector in 3-dimensional space, like
position or angular velocity, even though attitude is a 3-dimensional
quantity.
Attitude is always specified as a rotation relative to a base, or reference
frame
