Newton's laws of motion
We have seen that the motion of a given particle appears differently for 2 different observers (reference frames) There is a priori no prefered reference frame from a kin
MAE146: Astronautics Notes Benjamin F. Villac January 8, 2010
Given a reference frame R = (0, e1 , e2 , e3 ), the elementary rotations are dened as the rotations transforming the basis (e1 , e2 , e3 ) into a basis (f1 , f2 , f3 ) with one of the basis vec
